Windows says: Hello world! Check this out, world, this is really cool.
Now I have, uh, something like, uh, "privileges management"!

"UAC" is no more than a new commercial designation for something with
about 40 years.
And they (Redmond) are still missing the concept's point.


He's saying Microsoft has embraced and extended "privilege management"
and "introduced" it as something new, "UAC".

He then says Microsoft is daft and missing the entire point of
privilege management, even though it's been around for decades and
their "UAC" is nothing new.

Make sense?


Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even
if chequered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who
neither enjoy much nor suffer much, because they live in the grey
twilight that knows not victory or defeat.
