Oh, geez.  Someone hasn't been paying attention.  No, it doesn't ask you
for a password, because it randomly generates a secure password for you.
Administrator is not supposed to be used anymore, and as such creates a
very strong password by default... *AND* it disables the account by
default.  If you need to use the Administrator account, you'll have to set
your own password before you can use it to login.

They're still there.  They're just not enabled by default.  You can turn it
on very easily.  It turns out that almost everyone turned this off right
away as the very first thing anyways.  It's part of the security lockdown
wizard, though.
