Vista UAC In Real Life

Taken of course with a grain of sale (this is slashdot you know), this commenters story of the most frustrating 10 minutes in front of a computer sounds eerily familiar to the "spoof" switch ad that Dana talked about the other day.

I'm told that after you have everything configured and setup, you never see the UAC prompts again, which is good, unless you're like me and enjoy trying new software and mucking around with the system, which may mean the best alternative for people like me is to disable UAC, which means that you end up with the situation in the ad of "then he doesn't warn me at all".

Interesting to see some of the reaction to Vista now that it is actually real and out there and people are able to use the final version and not base reactions on previews, marketing literature, etc.
