Actually Windows does exactly the same thing. e.g. the 'Network Service' and 'Local Service' accounts. See
People seem to forget that the original and worst worm outbreak ever - that efffectively shut down the internet for days was on UNIX...
Windows might have its problems but they are not unique.

privileges, you'll make your Unix system just as insecure as Windows.
