Hi all.I was wondering if anyone had any specific reason we should use sudo instead of actually switching to root.Does not removing all files starting at / work the same doing it as root or using sudo ?What's the reasoning behind putting a layer between the user and root ?I've never understood it and really never used it. I prefer commandline, and detest typing sudo in front of everything I'm doing.Greg Booth
