Most processes running as root?!

I noticed in a screen shot of "ps" pretty much all processes (including X) were
all running as root.
As I'm sure you know, this is bad, bad, bad, bad, bad.
Running everything as root is a perfect way for exploits/virusus to get a hold
of these devices.
It defeats the secure nature of Linux.
Please make it so there is a normal use to run as many things as possible!
