New What are you gibbering about, you cretin? Re-read his posts!
New Oh, Chuckles
and Pete too

rave on

and on

the way UAC works for a non-admin user is that they have no option to turn it off
they are asked for a password
if they don't have it they can't do whatever they were trying

not what Pete said

Since when was the average home user non-admin?

New Ok. Lets review
[link|http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/aa906021.aspx|http://technet.micro...sta/aa906021.aspx]

User Account Control: Delivering a More Secure Desktop
The main goal of User Account Control is to reduce the exposure and attack surface of the operating system by requiring that all users run in standard user mode. This limitation minimizes the ability for users to make changes that could destabilize their computers or inadvertently expose the network to viruses through undetected malware that has infected their computer.

With User Account Control, IT administrators can run most applications, components and processes with a limited privilege, but have "elevation potential" for specific administrative tasks and application functions.

Conversely, when users encountera system task that requires administrator privileges, such as attempting to install an application, Windows Vista will notify the user and require administrator authorization. This type of prompting helps ensure that users do not accidentally make modifications to their desktops. It also helps eliminate the ability for malware to invoke administrator privileges without a user's knowledge.

As a defense-in-depth measure, User Account Control also provides additional protection for administrators through its Administrator Approval Mode. With Administrator Approval Mode, Windows Vista will run most applications with standard user permissions even if the user is an administrator. If a user wishes to run a program that requires administrator permissions, they must give consent through a User Account Control prompt. This helps limit malware's ability to make system-wide changes without the administrator's knowledge. However, Administrator Approval Mode does not provide the same level of security or control as a true standard user account.


So what does this say really.

Its says, up to now the vast majority of windows users have operated as administrators. Our advanced new operating system doesn't let you do that anymore...and requires you to enter information whenever you decide to add or delete any software, access any site that is somewhere MS deems "unsafe" and so on and so on.

In addition, you can't run software that needs admin rights without specifically granting them at some prompt somewhere.

Sorry, at this point I have to agree with Peter that the vast majority of people will find the easiest way to delete or disable this as possible...rendering it useless and ineffectual.

You also seem to think it [link|http://www.petri.co.il/disable_uac_in_windows_vista.htm|can't be disabled], if I read you correctly. You are mistaken.

During demos.

Hey, we want to sell some crap.
Hey, it runs horrible when UAC is enabled.
No problem, turn it off.

New That typifies the problem with UAC:
Marketing got a say. :-/

Their goals are noble. Unfortunately, their execution leaves something to be desired. Part of that problem is the sheer historical weight of programs and habits of defaulting to Administator privileges for everything. Reviewers are not helping by laying the problems almost entirely at Microsoft's feet. That's not to say the Microsoft have made mistake with it, of course.

New Well now.
That seems to be as close to a descriptions of what "sudo" does in as many words.

Except... "sudo" has more granularity.

Sorry. Innovation? no. Making headway? Absolutely not. Catching up? Not hardly.

Okay, let up be serious here. "sudo" has been around for a while, a long while. I've used it since *BEFORE* 1998.

At least Microsoft picked a good model to "embrace and extend". They did muck it up quite badly. They "re-thought" the interface ... badly. They made it complicated. They made it cumbersome.

Oh well, at least it is in the right direction. 10 steps forward, 9 steps and a few inches of a skid back again.

Example.

DACLs. Windows-only folk make a big deal out of these, saying that the UID/GID-based security of UNIX filesystems is inadequate, and that you need NTFS (which, for all that it's attached to a steaming pile of shit operating system, is actually a pretty good filesystem).

Tell me again when the proprietary UNIXes grew these? Was it 1992ish? When did VMS have these? 1982-ish?

Windows: failing to understand that writing a badly-designed wizard is not the same as innovation since 1995.

New I'm thinking...
...it was more about tone than topic
Too much of today's music is fashionable crap dressed as artistry.Adrian Belew
New It's the other way around; the poor nitwit is incapable...
...of understanding what Peter writes. (Or rather, pretends to be.)

Peter complains that Vista's UAC works like shit -- i.e, fails to *do* what it sets out to do -- in large part because it's too annoying; Andrea Dear gibbers in reply about how Peter doesn't get what Vista's UAC *sets out* to do, i.e, its purpose. No, fuckwit, he's known *that* all the time -- what he's been saying all along in this thread is, it doesn't *succeed* at it. But Andrea just refuses to get that distinction.

Just re-read the thread slowly and you'll se that that's where the "problem" (as artificial and intentional as it is) lies.

And therefore fuck knows if the reason s/he/it doesn't jump down your throat is your more conciliatory (Why, BTW?) tone in that one post -- or just the fact that s/he/it is apparently not *intentionally refusing* to understand what s/he/it is reading when it is written by anyone else but Peter or me. (Could that have anything to do with the fact that most of the rest of you guys haven't yet publically declared your understanding of s/he/its $hillness?)

Personally, I think the latter seems quite a bit more likely.

New Question
Is UAC described in the official Microsoft literature as a way to "limit or control the behavior of users"? Or is it described as a way to improve the security of the system?

You could take the dodge that in order to secure the system you have to "limit or control the behavior of users", but that is an implementation detail. I believe[1] the advertised purpose of UAC is to increase security. And in that respect, it fails -- specifically because it instead implements a way to "limit or control the behavior of users".



[1] I lied. I actually know that's the [link|http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsvista/aa906022.aspx|advertised purpose].
User Account Control (UAC) is a new security component of the Microsoft\ufffd Windows Vista operating system. UAC enables users to perform common tasks as non-administrators, called standard users in Windows Vista, and as administrators without having to switch users, log off, or use Run As. <snip> By separating user and administrator functions while enabling productivity, UAC is an important enhancement for Windows Vista.

No

at the risk of quibbling with the dictionary, I've always had a slightly different understanding of the term
at a 3 card monte game, the 'winner' with the handful of cash who is a partner of the dealer is a shill

from Wikipedia:

A shill is an associate of a person selling goods or services or a political group, who pretends no association to the seller/group and assumes the air of an enthusiastic customer. The intention of the shill is, using crowd psychology, to encourage others unaware of the set-up to purchase said goods or services or support the political group's ideological claims. Shills are often employed by confidence artists and governments.

Certainly, I think that is what Chuckles means when he calls me a shill

And the wonders of focused limited definitions.

You/he promote the environment, purposefully ignoring flaws, because it benefits you.

You are both shills.

He is a directly paid one, you are indirectly since it benefits your career in general.The more people that adopt it, the more money he makes and the more likelyhood your skillset will keep you employed.

And the comment concerning brain damage was a kind one, because otherwise, you'd be displaying the ultimate skill of a shill, the ability to ignore the incredibly obvious.

Purposeful stupidity is such an endearing trait, wouldn't you say?

I always wondered about "pure" IT guys. Those that are tied with supporting the entire company, doing infrastructure stuff, like file serving, authentication, email, printing, networking, backups, non-customer specific DBA, etc.

People in these positions often seem to lose focus on the company and what it needs to do to service its customers, since customer contact is so indirect to them.

They get to "tax" the organization, and incompetent people can last a lot longer than anywhere else since the group as a whole is often blamed for their mistakes, which means only a top level firing can start moving the group forward.

Seem like the perfect place for MS specific people to hang around.
