Actually Windows does exactly the same thing. e.g. the 'Network Service' and 'Local Service' accounts. See http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/midsizebusiness/topics/networksecurity/securingaccounts.mspx
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.

The very reason Unix is more secure than Windows is that Unix actively
uses the permission system to prevent insecure things like PHP from
munging the networking daemons. By running PHP with higher
privileges, you'll make your Unix system just as insecure as Windows.
