Shipped in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 26052. https://www.tiraniddo.dev/2024/02/sudo-on-windows-quick-rundown.html claims it has a big security problem that makes the program accept calls to elevate from anywhere once first run

Edit:

  1. The security problem has been internally fixed and will be available in the next release
  2. It’s not just an alias for ‘runas’. It seems to be able to configurably block user input for sudo’d commands, retain the existing environment, ditch it and open a new window, and remember that you’ve sudo’d in the last minute or so.
  3. It brings up UAC instead of having you input the password

    Install Linux already, get it over with. Windows has been and still is a sad joke, why pay for that crap?

      Sure, tell my corporate overlords to do that, on thousands of computers across the globe.

      At home i can do what I want, at work I have to bow down.

      Because business uses Windows services, which are, by far, the most common. And when collaborating and sharing files is essential this is a major deal breaker. I love *nix but it just wouldn’t work as well in the business world until there are wide spread services that replicate or do better than what Microsoft does with enterprise support and pricing in mind.

        You can get a legit Windows 11 key for like 5 bucks, no reason not to install it honestly. Even if only for dual booting, it can save you a lot of headaches.

        A product key, which allows you to use Windows to its fullest, costs money to Microsoft.

          That’s a myth that people need to stop spreading.

          Microsoft is a business. Microsoft is also not stupid. If it cost them more to provide a product than it makes them, they wouldn’t provide it. They’re is a huge amount of examples of them doing this. They don’t provide it because they’re nicer guys.

          Microsoft uses Windows, and all of it’s products, as a vehicle for Azure and advertisers. Everything they do feeds into that one way or another.

          Microsoft stopped being a software company some time ago.

          Most people here pirate it or get the price bundled with their manufacturer. It’s surprisingly easy
