Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I was not looking at setting no paswords or anything, i can edit the files as I need. It was the content of the file I looked again and debain has a short sudoers file where the others is much more complex,
I was just wondering. Thats why I asked if there where 2 versions of the file, or was debains version Edited by the builders of system.
That you see difference between distros is normal. For example, while Ubuntu (and derivates) make excessive use of sudo, to the point that you can't even login as root without manually setting a password for that account, Debian in the default configuration doesn't use sudo. So Ubuntu must have a different configuration for sudo by default than Debian or other distributions that don't use sudo.
Then what would be the point of having "root" and the security of the Linux file system? Forgive my ignorance, but I fail to understand why anyone would want to throw out all of their system's security.
