|Vista Suckage #1|
One of my annoyances with Vista is the hoops you have to go thru to do a simple every day power-user task, editing the hosts file.
Once you know the trick (even though you're logged in as an administrator user, you have to right-click your editor of choice, and say run as administrator), it's not that hard to accomplish, but the manager who came up with the idea still needs a swift kick to the head.
If you are on a machine with an admin account and a user account, the OS should assume I picked the user to be on purpose, and not restrict the admin rights I logged in for. I can understand the paranoia on a machine with only one login, but not on a properly configured and managed machine.
