  • The Springboard Series program was developed in response to primary research conducted with IT Pros worldwide (direct interviews, focus groups) and key MS field roles (TSPs, ATSs, ITEs, PAMs, TAMs, Architects). The findings fell into two areas—the need to make learning about how a new OS environment directly impacts the IT Pro more consumable (and the messages more relevant), and how the mis-handling of Vista to this audience has cost us in poor NSAT and perceptionsTo remedy this situation, the Win Client IT pro audience developed a program to provide the right information, at the right technical level, at the right point in the adoption lifecycle, and to do so in a frank, open and honest tone. This program has two major components—a breadth effort that touches IT pros directly (through Technet and related properties), and a depth component that supports field and partner engagements
  • UAC was introduced in Windows Vista to help provide customers more control of their system by enabling IT administrators to lock down the system for certain users by running them within standard, non privileged user accounts and to influence the ecosystem to write software that does not need administrative rights. Transitioning the ecosystem to create software that does not require administrative changes to the machine is a very good thing for overall reliability of the machine as well as for the overall security of the machine since it limits the potential damage. UAC has delivered successfully on this in the Windows Vista timeframe and customers continue to value the ability to create a standard user and be confident an administrator can make the decisions on what software is added to the system and what changes should be allowed. However, we have received substantial feedback about the number of notifications for change. In Windows 7, we have invested in addressing the key customer feedback around UAC, while still maintaining the ability for IT administrators to be confident about a standard user environmentand still maintaining the influence on the ecosystem to create software that does not require administrative rights.We have enabled the Windows operations that users do often to be done in a standard user environment with the goal of providing prompt free daily activities. For example, a standard user can now adjust the readability of the screen (dpi) without having to change it for the entire system. Additionally, we have reduced key duplicate notifications for common activities such as installing applications from IE. We have also made it easier for IT to look at key setting on the system without needing administrative privileges by refactoring many of our control panel applications into read only and write sections.In line with our overall Windows 7focus on user-in-control, we have enabled a person running as a protected administrator to determine the range of notifications s/he receives. Based on customer feedback and actual instrumented data from our customers’ response to UAC prompts, we default the initial setting for UAC such that administrators are notified when software other than Windows is requesting to change the overall system and such that standard users will receive a request for administrator authorization for any change to the overall system. We believe this default setting has the right balance of establishing an ecosystem where a broad range of ISV software can be run in a standard user environment while providing administrators with control over the experience of configuring Windows.
