Microsoft's UAC & Sudo

Mackenzie recently blogged about the history of Sudo and the similarity to Vista's UAC
What makes this whole thing funny, though, is something I saw a couple days ago. Head over to Builder-AU and listen to Peter Watson from Microsoft. He says, User Account Control is a great idea and strategically a direction that sort of all operating systems and all technology should be heading down Excuse me
My brief encounter with Ubuntu and the chanced encounter of the dialog box seeking my root password stunned me of the close resemblance to ME II's UAC.
