You, sir, are advocating one of the major 'stupid Windows

um, I still do not get it - why do you keep talking about
Windows? ... it is Fedora here
and you *need* to use root to achieve some things, like editing
configfiles or so
so, what is wrong about using Konqueror as root?
is, for example, Midnight commander any better? - or typing "cd
something; ls; cd something; ls ..." in bash?
is it just because you hate Konqueror, or you hate GUI in
no one ever on this thread was talking about "doing everything as
root" which seems to be the thing you argue against
The point is, I believe, that to disable root is considered a
"is considered"? - no, *you* and a few others consider ... but
there is also a number of people that disagree - do not promote
your personal opinion to the ultimate truth(tm)
you want to babysit the others
I want the freedom
Those that disagree with that thought and wish to
open their system that way are free to do so.
no, they are not free - they have to overcome the obstacles put
by the other group
Those that do
not know *how* to do that probably should *not* do that.
Makes sense to me.
to me, it does not - I really do not understand why should I
study tons of TFM just to learn how to allow me to edit a
configfile or whatever
