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.

is there not a microsoft statement saying that uac was designed to annoy third party devs into minimizing their use of admin access right when not needed?

I've seen that arrogant statement. But this has nothing to do with 3rd party devs requiring admin rights access. I get harassed any time I run any third-party app that hasn't been digitally signed even if no admin rights at all are in play. And I can never tell vista that I trust that particular application and to stop asking.

I think MS was more interested in annoying users to get them to shift away from F/OSS programs that don't have the infrastructure to digitally sign all their tools.
