Ed Bott Looks at UAC

Over at his ZDNet Blog, Ed Bott has a post titled A fresh look at Vista's User Account Control where he walks you through the details of UAC. I've already posted my views on this feature previously. Nothing that Ed discusses makes me think any more highly of the implementation. Mileage, as always, varies, but Vista is just plain easier to use with UAC turned off.

Yep, and Windows XP is much easier to use with Windows Firewall turned off, and UNIX is much easier to use if you log in as root! Yay, security.
