From the Apple Style Guide at

"To maintain the distinction between professional administrators and
Mac OS X users with administrator accounts, avoid using the noun
administrator by itself to describe a person who has an administrator
account in Mac OS X. Instead, say an admin user or a user with an
administrator account-typically, the owner (or owners) of a particular
Macintosh computer."

(The issue this sentence talks about applies to Windows as well)

All righty, then. You don't have enough to do with your life. Go outside and get some fresh air.
