You are right at your point. But most people dont even know sudo is there.
And that is the de facto standard for debian distro's and ubuntu. I also
didn't know this. I also worked for sometime with root priviledge last year.
Then after reading list and other documentation I stopped that forever.

Whenever system warns you need root priviledge to do so. Pple who are
familiar with traditional linux(Fedora at their training or Red Hat at lab
etc) try to use the root user. Thats the conclusion.
