Umm.. no. All accounts are the same in Windows. There is no "superuser"
account. Windows works entirely on a privileged based model. The only
thing that makes an administrator account an admisitrator is if that
account is given that privilege.
Even so, an Administrator isn't a superuser. He can't bypass security.
All ACL's apply to him, just as they would any other user. He can change
permissions, but the account does not disregard them, unlike userid 0
(usually root) on Linux.
And, I might add, that this is nothing new. NT has *ALWAYS* had this, for
the last 12 years.

In other words, you can't actually substantiate what you said.

Or, more likely, you read speculation by some people, and then you read
comments on the speculation by others.
