Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Huh?
You means I can use it to assign a group of people (based on group membership) the ability execute specific command (or a group using pattern matching wild cards) as a specific user (NOT ADMIN USER), ie: a production user that has very clearly defined rights against certain files and certain hardware.

I doubt it.

New I was giving them the benefit of the doubt.
You are right. Most of (All) the "Milestones" Microsoft has made with Vista for security have been in UNIX, since... forever or at least since the "everything is a file" idea came about.

It is really a shame. I just hope they fix it.

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.
