This is a question about Linux Ubuntu (and Mint). As a new user to the Linux system, I was interested in the fact that Ubuntu doesn't allow the PC owner to be root/administrator. Regardless of whether there are good reasons for this I am puzzled.
If I want to do smething for which I need root privileges for I have to use the sudo command. But then I wonder to myself what is the point of taking out the root user if you can, in effect, become the root user by sudo (and of course, you need to be PC owner at the time). I'm not sure what has been solved by this.
