Vista, UAC, and the command like junkie

So I log in with a Joe Schmoo, non-admin account to a Vista machine. In Task Manager, I go to the Processes tab and it only shows a subset of processes – not all user processes. To show process from all users, it requires administrative rights, as indicated by the button at the bottom with the UAC icon.

So instead, I go to a Command Prompt, type the command tasklist, and there’s a listing of all processes that are running from all users.

Great consistency there…

Office may be officially unbound, but there's all those secret hooks, etc., that M$ got in "trouble" with on the Lotus 1-2-3/Excel thing.

Things would be a lot better if M$ had been split in the anti-trust case as originally proposed, with a wall between the core OS and the applications.

Then we could have divisions focused on Zune and Microsoft TV too! Heh.

And the products probably would have been a helluva lot better.

That's Tai Ming.

David Berlind at ZDnet has a couple of interesting posts (look at the 17th and 18th).

I swear, I did not see these until today.
