Then again allowing the employees to bring down your entire business
doesn't really smell like good planning.

1. I have beaten them into submission.
2. It's not the employee's laptop, it's the company's laptop, so the
employees are told what they can do and cannot do. They don't really
want to loose their job because they have crashed the network or deleted
the corporate word documents...
3. I regularly oversee all the laptops, just like the desktops.
4. If there are problem people, it's not my problem, it's a management
problem. Management does not want to loose all the data or the network.
