on Macs, you are prompted to enter your password when you are installing software (and the OS bothers you hardly any other time, but that's another topic entirely ;-)
This one "feature" makes self-installing programs on Macs basically nonexistent. On a PC, things can install themselves without asking you to allow it.
I don't quite agree with Matt's draconian judgment of PC usage in businesses but I would say that purposely allowing IE6 to be used on a machine (in a home or business) is definitely, absolutely negligent.
