Smart UAC - http://www.replaceuac.com/
Seems a good "replacement" for Norton UAC (NUAC)...
I can't discover, but seems free.

I'm staying the hell away from this one ...

Tech,
The product put out by Symantec happens to be fairly good even if you don't like Symantec.  ;D
The one you want to use as a replacement on the other hand isn't something I would mess with.  :(

iTunes goes DRM-Free

The biggest complaint by far with iTunes is that the songs you buy are protected with Apple's FairPlay DRM, preventing them from working on other MP3 players and other software. Now all iTunes songs will be DRM-Free by the end of March and you can easily re-download all you existing music in the DRM-Free format.

The graphic requirements have been downgraded from the Vista Ultimate version.

The talk coming out of the PR/Marketing side of MS, they are saying if you can run Vista then you should be able to run windows 7 on the same hardware.

I think they learnt a heavy and expensive lesson on the heavy hardware upgrade hit on Vista.

I think MS got badly burned with the jump in system spec to move from XP to Vista. Not to mention the current ongoing fiasco about MS and the Vista Capable stickers on new systems, that could cost them a lot in court. I'm sure many more would probably have upgraded if it effectively meant they would have to get a new system or it required a major system upgrade too.

That extra cost made it too much for many people and they would wait until they were going to upgrade or buy a new system...

Still a heck of a lot less expensive than switching to a Mac.  ;D
