I've been fighting this battle for many years, in many jobs. I am tired of it. I have gone through the machinations of "Proving" I need it, but really, it's just ridiculous. This is a timely topic for me, as my work has once again, decided to launch yet another Developers dont need admin" campaign. I am so tired of the battle, that I am willing to just sit and let the project timeline go bust, rather than make any huge effort to make them "come over and see". The Problem is usually rooted to a Developer, website, Architect, or Network Admin... who sells them the "bill of goods", which immediately casts suspcision "So they have been fooling us all this time?". Once that hook is set, the game is done, and it breaks the whole development group down. <loop>. Do I need admin "All the time"? no, don't be silly.. but when I do need it, I need it. You want to insert (x) hours for me to get it, thats gonna add up to significant time. Also - we have 120GB SSD's, that they load 100 GB of stuff on, leaving us barely enough space for VS. Then they issue us external drives to compensate, but we also have a "NO USB Drives allowed monitor", so we have to "request" permission to "Mount the drive".

Where there's smoke, there's a Blue Screen of death.
