Vista UAC

Warner across at GottaBeMobile makes an interesting point that User Access Control in Vista can be, at times, quite frustrating to say the least.  That is for all us power users.  Unfortunately given the current state of most applications – where due to poor application design they have had to use some OS hack – UAC is going to be annoying for everyone.  Developers need to build applications that can work in the normal user context, only requiring elevated privileges (perhaps) during installation.  IMHO Vista’s UAC is no longer Microsoft’s problem, it is up to every developer out there to fix their application to require less privileges, or at least define what privileges it does need (most applications have no idea).
