Fine: s/modern linux system/modern linux desktop system/. But, are you sure you understand the difference between local and remote users?
According to the documentation, local users are the ones that have access to a physical keyboard, mouse and display. I can see the benefits of not granting full privileges to a remotely connected user, but that's not what I was on about.
In fact, you don't need to be a member of video (at least my webcam works fine). Kvm is useful, but I wouldn't be surprised if in fedora 16 (and then in all other distros), kvm would be managed by ck as well.
Webcam also works fine here without me being in video group, must have been a leftover before *kit took care of it, I stand corrected on that one. The others still stand and the thing is you can't be only part of the users group and do everything, in time maybe you can but right now you can't.
