    It speeds up nothing about UAC, it just looks faster without the split
    second switch from unsecure to secured desktop. And, it enables a properly
    written bit of malware to usurp control and self elevate. There's nothing
    good about that tweak.

    Nonsense. UAC is a well-intended, but poorly implemented security feature.

    If disabling the secure desktop is enough to convince more people to leave
    UAC enabled, then it is a useful tweak. Hopefully, in time, MS will revisit
    UAC and make it more usable, but in the meantime, we have to make the best
    of it.
