Windows For Windows 7, Microsoft has made some changes to User Account Control to counter the criticism that UAC was too intrusive.

Ars has an editorial that deals with this question.

Member since:

NT already has this. Again, userland decided not to enforce it.

Isn't that like saying "My car's engine can push 10lbs of pressure, but the frame, transmission, rings, headers, etc. can't handle it."..

You're only as strong as your weakest link my friend =)
