On some Linux distros you use the Root account to perform tasks that require elevated permissions, but on others the Root account is disabled and Sudo is used instead. Which method do you prefer?
Personally I prefer the Root way. Sudo can be useful, but I find using Root is easier. For example, earlier today I posted about installing XAMPP on Lubuntu. If you use Root (or at least simulate it with sudo -i) their are no issues, but if you use Sudo and don't change XAMPP's installation settings you end up with a botched Mozilla Firefox profile if you haven't previously setup a Mozilla Firefox profile under that user account. Deleting the profile won't fix it, nor will uninstalling Mozilla Firefox (even if you use sudo apt-get purge firefox). This isn't totally Sudo's fault; it's a bit silly that XAMPP opens an elevated browser without at least warning you, but still. I find sudo usually complicates my day rather than simplifies it, and that is why I prefer using Root.
