Title says it all...

Is it better to have individual user accounts rather than one "shared" account? (5 users)
I ask because it's a debate in our department. I want individual accounts and my manager wants shared accounts. Reason being: when they lock the computer, no one has to guess what the password is.
I say it's a threat because if anyone in the group becomes hostile and they do something malicious, I won't be able to tell who exactly it is or was .

side note: this pertains to a small group of 5 users who do not share computers anymore.
