Reduce unnecessary or duplicated prompts in Windows and the ecosystem, such that critical prompts can be more easily identified.
Enable our customers to be more confident that they are in control of their systems.
Make prompts informative such that people can make more confident choices. Provide better and more obvious control over the mechanism."
Queste sono le parole tratte dal blog ufficiale di Windows 7. Quindi un UAC (User Account Control) meno invasivo e più "intelligente".
..."we evolve UAC for Windows 7 we will address the customer feedback and satisfaction issues with the prompts themselves. We’ve heard loud and clear that you are frustrated. You find the prompts too frequent, annoying, and confusing. We still want to provide you control over what changes can happen to your system, but we want to provide you a better overall experience. We believe this can be achieved by focusing on two key principles. 1) Broaden the control you have over the UAC notifications. We will continue to give you control over the changes made to your system, but in Windows 7, we will also provide options such that when you use the system as an administrator you can determine the range of notifications that you receive. 2) Provide additional and more relevant information in the user interface. We will improve the dialog UI so that you can better understand and make more informed choices."
I due punti, tradotti, dicono:
1) Noi continueremo a darvi il controllo delle modifiche apportate al sistema, ma in Windows 7, vi forniremo anche le opzioni in modo che quando si utilizza il sistema come amministratore sarà possibile determinare la serie di notifiche che si riceve.
2) Fornire ulteriori e più pertinenti informazioni in interfaccia utente
Le aspettative per questo s.o. aumentano!
