Longhorn Security and Dell Customer Support

Monday 11th July 2005

According to Microsoft, Longhorn will not expect you to always to be logged in as Administrator, unlike the previous NT versions. This is a similar vein to Linux, where you should only log in as Root, essentially Administrator, where you really need to. If it helps with security, I'm happy about it, although Microsoft needs to make sure that there are less security holes this time, or at least patch them faster.

On the hardware side, Dell has decided to shut down its Customer Support Forums - The Register covers the story.
