a second for TobiSGD's post
it is right on the money
we do not care about YOUR computer only what a rooted machine can do to US
1. It takes a lot LESS time to enter the root password than it does to reload Linux... :c)
WHAT?? To run as root there is and never has been a need to "reload" ( what reboot ? ) just run as root in a new session ( linux is not windows )
there is almost never a reason to boot into root . There are some exceptions as with everything .
However this is a very old thread for fedora 12 and fedora 15 is the current version. Now seeing as 12 is way past it's end of life why not just close
this fedora 12 thread
