    This whole "you remain root for five minutes" thing is a terrible idea. Some screenshots suggested that they are planning that for Windows 7 too and I hope they reconsider. It's so easy to poke holes into that system, it's a terrible idea.
    What's so wrong about giving users an option? In Vista it seems to be or all nothing. You can Ubuntu remove the grace period or change it to any arbitrary time or disable the entire thing entirely.
