Well, for one because ubuntu is built in such a way that you cannot log in as root....... !

Which way is safer, is a point of discussion... The sudo way of doing things is a nice way of giving responsibilities step by step, though. Now I don't  have to go and troubleshoot my 16 yr old daughter's laptop for every minor detail, that's her problem now, I just jump in if real havoc is done......or to edit 'grub'. ;-)

Good luck,
