"Shouldn't"? Using "su" is pretty standard Linux practice. And everyone should have
the freedom to run their system the way they like, don't you think?
Otherwise, that's pretty weak. If they want to do things only the Ubuntu

You don't *have* to follow all things the Ubuntu way, if you don't want to.
