The flip side
Of my ongoing Ubuntu issues is of course the standard Windows security by hijinks.
Trying to install Tomcat 6 on my Vista box. Launching the install and Vista checks my permission, which is fine and the install runs okay until the service installation part where it dies with a fairly ambiguous error message. I was able to get it installed eventually by disabling the UAC (security in Vista), which also took several reboots to disable and re-enable.
So, I did get it working but what kind of OS
And the answer is Vista. So it's the same old security rubbish as always in Windows, sort of useful but not really because it lacks granularity, requires totally needless rebooting and is totally counter-intuitive.
