Windows A senior Microsoft executive has promised that its new operating system will be more secure than ever. Jean-Philippe Courtois, president of Microsoft International, said that beefing-up security was one reason behind delays to Windows Vista. Microsoft has been criticised for flaws in previous systems that left users vulnerable to attacks by hackers. Mr Courtois said Microsoft had done "tons of work to make Vista a fantastic experience when it comes to security".

Some good points n4cer. Goto take UAC complaints with a grain of salt as most of them are Win Power Users who have f-all idea of security and permissions.

MS is doing a decent job to rectify problems Windows has had in the past and most of them are due to normal users running an Admin account with XP.

That's 6 years of bad user habits to break. Not going to happen without some winging on the end user side but the dust will settle after the 1st year and people will wonder what ll the fuss was about.
