Admitting a problem first step towards recovery 

It is really incredible to see Microsoft admitting just how insecure their previous versions of Windows are.

"In Windows Vista, the built-in administrator account is disabled by default. In previous versions of Windows, an Administrator account was automatically created during Out-of-Box-Experience (OOBE) with a blank password."

"An Administrator account with a blank password is a security risk. To better protect the system, the built-in Administrator account is disabled by default in all clean installations and upgrades of Windows Vista."

To me, the story is not the improvements in Vista, but rather the obvious mistakes of the past.
