There are still some…

…who do not need to own, look at, or attempt to use a computer.

My brother just called me from his job and had another guy there with a computer issue. It seems my brother can find the brightest people in the world, bright in a negative lumen’s type way. Anyways, this buddy of his buys a brand new laptop, actually the same laptop I have. Well, it comes with Windows Vista (of course mine had it, but never saw the light of day, didn’t even get one solid bootup with Windows), and it seems that Microsoft decided to finally recognize that the Unix world was one up with user/admin stuff. Now they have a superuser account instead of the old trusty administrator (of which a majority of users changed to sysadm or sysadmin because they thought it was more secure). Well it seems this guy created a password for the superuser account and even created a hint for it. He doesn’t remember doing so, so he says, but he has nonetheless forgot the password. OK, no problem, what is the hint? "haha". Little does he know that is really Vista laughing in his face.

After talking with the guy, who sounded either like Bill or Ted from their excellent adventures, I simply told him, "Just like breeding, computers are another thing you should leave alone.". Please God, make the Windows questions from family and friends go away.
