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

    Tell me it has a better configuration format than sudo.

    (I’ve ditched sudo for OpenBSD ‘doas’ across the board ever since it made its way into debian’s repos)

      better configuration format

      Well, there’s only three choices to choose from and set through a command, soooo…

      Also switched to doas on Arch. Works great.

      I wonder if “please” is nice too, but it’s such a long word to type.
