Have fun indeed. Have fun leaving a wide-open attack target
on your computer. If one of the sysadmins who knows the root
password on your computer turns into your enemy, have fun
telling the other sysadmins the root password; it would be
much easier just to remove the evildoer from /etc/sudoers.
Have fun accidentally wiping out some important files when
you're logged in as root.

The absence of a root user is a feature, not a bug. But have
fun thinking you know better.
