This one looks a lot like OS/2 1.3's GUI (which was, AFAIK, based on Windows 3.0's GUI).

So, apparently, they did plan to fully copy sudo (too bad they ended up with a crippeled version).

He means that the window asking the user to enter a password (what became UAC eventually) is a copy of the sudo mechanism used on *NIX systems to temporarily gain administrator/root access. UAC is a badly done copy of sudo.

Probably because he has been a *NIX user for years (as have I) and didn't think of someone not knowing what he was talking about. :P

This is like saying that a train is a badly done car.

Try using an NT4/2000/XP/2003 machine, without any sort of admin privileges.

How do you install a local printer?
How would you change a the name server you are using?
How do you install an application whos binaries are in your personal profile on a remote file server?
... without logging out and back in as administrator.

Quite frankly you can't. The first two on that list, there is no binary to use 'run as' on. You may be able to use rundll32 to install a printer... but I digress. The third, runas runs the binary in the process space of the user specified to launch this app. Said user will not have access to your personal shares, unless you are a complete dope about your security settings.

UAC allows me to do all of this stuff transparently, as if I were actually running it myself, without the headaches and limitations of runas.

runas is akin to sudo. UAC is a lot more... but home users without a real security policy (DOMAIN/AD) won't ever notice the good points.

Information At Your Fingertips was a Microsoft Keynote held on the 12th November 1990, and was mainly about networking and network based email, so I guess that this build (concept) was supposed to be about network (did they know of the internet at that time? could have been for when the internet came out.)

They work fine here. Make sure your firewall isn't stopping your browser from sending referrer headers.

These are neat! It really is cool to see what a program *could* have been...too bad it normally doesn't end up that way!

The "Information on your finger tips" looks like OS/2 2.x, not 1.x. The bookshelf icon, print icon and find icon are almost identical, even.

OS/2 had "On-ramp to the Information Superhighway", even.

Aw man, I wan't that interface so bad it's not even funny. Got the (imo) vastly purtier window-frames, a nice taskbar and best of all the "old-school" Longhorn interface with that huge star for favourites and the nice navigational buttons. The tooltip history is quite nice as well.

That shell, a "proper" sidebar and the Vista kernel would be amazing.
