Hey, doesn't it depend on what you want to do? There are some times
that sudo works well, and others where it's a good idea to be root. For
example, if you're doing a whole raft of command-line commands and you
have to be root, it's a whole lot easier to do an /su/ and go to root
than to type /sudo/ in front of every command. Yes, it lets you in to
the possibility of doing damage, but you have to know the risk.
Frankly, I wouldn't use Ubuntu if I couldn't go to root, and I find sudo
a pain in the neck. But does this mean it's bad for others? Of course
