Was asked to comment on a Vista upgrade proposal some time ago, as I’ve been around the block once or twice with SOE designs.
Reading through the proposal document, from a Microsoft Gold Partner no less, was this gem:
“We’ll create a ‘Power User’ group on the Vista PCs.”
If you have read my previous posts about Power Users, you’d know my response. For those which have not …
A POWER USER IS A USER WHO HAS NOT GRANTED THEMSELVES ADMIN RIGHTS … YET.
The Corporate Consulting Bozos who wrote the report think it’s a great idea. It will get around the heartache of re-packaging “legacy” applications.
Even though, Vista has technologies built right in, to cope with shonky old applications.
There are some other “gems” in the proposal, which will guarantee on-going work for the Consulting Bozos. Via the use of proprietary tools.
