Update: More on new Longhorn features here.

OK, so from RTFDing I gather MS is now going to force the issue by implementing a system similar to what Ubuntu has in place. What does this do to legacy applications that require admin privileges? Are they going to sandbox them somehow or do they get free reign of the system?
