I primarily write Windows Services, so admin rights are a necessity. That said, I am rarely in the office, and usually work from home (I go into the office perhaps 5-7 days a year), so I have my own development machines, my own testing servers, Hyper-V servers for virtual clients, etc...

My home-office dev machines are MUCH more capable and better maintained than our office desktops. Smile | :)

Working as a developer, I can't imagine not having local admin permissions.
