I joined the club and installed Windows Vista RC1 and now I am using UAC
and no longer need to be logged in as an Administrator all day. The UAC prompt doesn’t come up all that often now that everything is installed. I tried in the past running as a non-admin on the desktop, but the experience was just too painful to do that for any length of time. This is pretty good. I got chuckling to myself to as I think I am the one of only people in the office who logs into their computer as a non-admin, everyone else has admin privileges on their local machine. Thankfully, I am not the IT support for those people.
I also installed Office 2007 with the technical refresh. I like the new Outlook; and Word and Excel still do what they are supposed too, although I am still trying to figure out where everything is along the top. A little note though if you are using older versions of Office with 2007, then you need to ensure you save the files in compatibility mode. To make this a permanent thing, click on the options in the office pull down menu in the office application you are in, click on the save spot and change the save file type.
I took this picture using the snipit tool in Vista. It’s a pretty slick tool. It sure beats Alt-Prt Scr of taking screen shots.
