Its honestly great to see when a company listens to customer feedback and admits an errors and fixes it openly thanks to that feedback.

Good Job MS.

It's about time they saw the error's of their way's. That's what this beta was all about I like to think. Having a UAC prompt only when a program tries to change things is a good idea. They had to realize that was the fundamental problem with Vista and I'am sure they don't want to repeat the mistakes made with Vista.
