Wow hello there! I whole-heartedly agree, but as a southerner I find
it a bit nippy up here. Beer is cheap though...

Yeah it pretty much is sudo. My one and only experience of UAC was
when the Vista Beta 2 was out, I figured I might as well grab a 'free'
copy of windows while I can. After going through UAC 6 or so times to
delete an icon from the desktop I simply gave up on it.

Plus it didn't run CounterStrike! (which is a big no no)
