Just the beginning.

This excursion into permissions is just the smallest snippet of what can be done with them, and with Vista and various types of users being enforced, permissions, ownership, users, denials, etc are a vital new part of usage.

Just imagine converting your XP machine to behave properly under the new Vista rules - changing from the bad behaviour of Administrator to that of a Limited User. How would you do that?

Next consider a prior Vista drive mounted in an external case attached to a new installation. How would you get the files off, user by user?
