You'd be surprised how little a PC can be locked down in a corporate environment when IT doesn't want to deal with it or spend the money.If you would have read correctly you'd realize that the man was already then over 70 years old. He's just using Windows and Office just like most users do. Or was using. And you can't compare corporate locked down Windows with a home user... Most corporate users I know absolutely hate their work laptops because they can't do much anything with them.
