  During the installation of ubuntu, i was asked to set my username and password. Does this mean that this is the password for the "superuser"? 
  Every time I log in using this username and password, does this make me the superuser? Does this mean that when i am in the Terminal, i am already at the "root" ?
  I am the only person using this computer.
