Robert McLaws: Windows Edition

Blogging about Windows since before Vista became a bad word

Jim Allchin Explains User Account Control

If there was any blog post that Jim needed to make, it was this one. In Jim's longest post to date, he explains, in the way only Jim can, the tradeoffs that went into the decision-making process for User Account Control, and why it is the way it is. Countless others have explained it in the past, but Jim has a way of explaining it that makes sense to regular people. I'm not going to quote it here, but it is a must read for any Vista user.
