Windows According to at least one blogger, Microsoft should abandon Vista before it's too late. It would appear he's not alone in this opinion, as Microsoft has begun allowing users to downgrade back to XP. Amongst the reasons? Poor sales figures and shoddy Vista "Extras".

How is turning it off any less secure than running Ubuntu as root? I think you're the one who needs to check what he's comparing.

If you turn off UAC, it is global.

I never said to run Ubuntu as root, I said working as root. The difference is plain.

I can open a terminal, su to root, then ctrl-d out of root when I am done.
