I just started reading this blog and it touched a nerve today with this salient observation:

According to one recent article, Windows 7 will provide a 29% reduction in the amount of clicks one will use for UAC. Interesting. I can reduce that number by 100%. Just turn the darn thing off! Problem solved.

Windows Vista UAC Colors 3 Windows Vista sUACksMy primary computer finally died the other month and after using Windows 2000 Server for my operating system I kinda decided to break it up into a Windows Server 2003 and Windows Vista workstation. I’ve been using Vista now for about 3 weeks and I have to say that the UAC sucks ass. I knew it sucked ass before from all the blogs and reports telling me that it sucked ass but after using it, it really sucks ass.

Copying certain files requires UAC? Renewing an IP address with IPCONFIG requires UAC? Configuring a printer requires UAC? I mean, I get it but seriously, it sucks ass.

I have been afraid that something….dun dun dun…bad would happen to me if I turned it off but I’m turning it off right now.

p.s. Seems like a fairly good blog and I’m going to give it the snip and paste treatment more often.
