1) I was invited to write an article on the subject.
2) I have WW username, however, for an article of this depth, the anonymity of a handle is hardly appropriate.
3) I looked up diatribe but could not find a definition that fits.
4) Any bias I may have against Microsoft is based purely on experience as a user and programmer. I have never worked for Microsoft, its subsidiaries or its competitors.
Microsoft recognized that a security problem exists because most users are logged on as administrators. Unfortunately, the solution they came up with (User Account Control) simply was not thought through properly. Quite simply, it is deficient in every regard.
1) It is not as secure as it could/should be.
2) It is not as backward compatible as it could/should be.
3) It is not as user-friendly as it could/should be.
4) It creates enormous and unnecessary problems for programmers.
As a writer I can explain and inform, but I cannot guarantee that everyone will understand.
