LXer: Thoughts About Ubuntu 8.04 - Pseudo Root User

Published at LXer:

I have read a number of heated complaints about Ubuntu's default implementation of sudo privileges in preference to simple root access. While I have issues with some of Ubuntu's implementations and features, this is not one of my complaints. Indeed, I prefer it. I have an administrative account that has sudo rights that I do not normally use. My activities are primarily restricted to another user's account that lacks any machine administrative rights [1.]. However, I use a single command to gain full root access rights when I desire it. Perhaps those driven away from Ubuntu due to this one issue might reconsider.
