Windows For Windows 7, Microsoft has made some changes to User Account Control to counter the criticism that UAC was too intrusive. It didn't take long before several holes were poked in Windows 7's default UAC settings, and now one is left to wonder: is it wise to sacrifice security for (perceived?) usability? Ars has an editorial that deals with this question.

(... and I hear the sound of a billion gnus yakking at once ...)

"Open source" != "free" as far as the FSF is concerned. You're "free" to disagree, though. ;-)
