UAC was set up in Vista to ANNOY THE USER!

Not like we didn't know that, but the reason it makes news now is because a Microsoft Executive said so himself. David Cross, a product unit manager at Microsoft - He was part of the super idiotic team that developed UAC for Vista.


The reason we put UAC into the platform was to annoy users. I'm serious


UAC - User Account Control - the annoying thing prompting up every time you want to install or modify a particular application or change a setting. I disabled UAC after the first few minutes of using Vista. Honestly, I really didn't think there would be anyone who would leave that annoying option enabled. I was surprised to read that - 88% of Vista users have UAC enabled (WTF!!! What's wrong with you people!) and 66% of Windows sessions do not encounter UAC prompts (huh! really! well I wouldn't know since I disabled the damn thing in the first few minutes itself)
