@deutrino in the Windows 9x case though, it was because there WAS no local authentication - there was an option for a primitive kind that'd swap profiles, but otherwise, authentication was only for network resources. There's no local security.

There's a similar GIF for NT, but in that case it's outright privilege escalation because 1. NT is multiuser/secure 2. You spawn EXPLORER.EXE as *NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM* - above Administrator. (The joys of shelling out in random stuff, at login...)

Good afternoon #SDF and the wider and weirder(In a good way!) #fediverse!

* Gitea, a fork of Gogs that's more actively developed, UI more like GitHub

* you can get a self-hostable version of Bitbucket IIRC, I use hosted one for a project and it's OK despite weird UI

* Team Foundation Server, with nice VS integration; have used, actually liked

* gitweb, for REAL MEN who EAT GLASS (use if you use git cli for VCS, and just want a repo viewer/use something else for bugs)

Apps have command prompts now - wish I could find some history on this for old GUIs that had this... lobste.rs/s/owpby5/apps_have_c
