Windows As someone who uses Windows Vista practically daily, I've always wondered where all the negativity in the media comes from. Sure, Vista isn't perfect (as if any operating system is), but I just don't see where all the complaints are coming from. It runs just fine on my old (6 years) machine, all my software and hardware is compatible, and it's stable as a rock. Microsoft has been wondering the same thing, and after a little test, they may have found out why people seem to dislike Vista so much.

Yes, but I would NOT recommend doing that - the whole point of UAC is increasing the security of the system. We shouldn't be encouraging people to turn UAC off, but rather educate them on why it's there, why it's needed, and what it does. UAC is not that bad, I get the odd prompt here and there (which mirrors everyone else that I've spoken to about Vista in my circle of friends), but it's quick, easy to approve and voila.

The *real* problem is that there are simply far too many people using computers who simply are idiots and shouldn't be allowed within cooee of one. I mean, do you let any old idiot drive a car without first getting a licence? Nope.
