Re: Linux root user

2-3 years ago we swapped to Ubuntu for this very reason, but at the time most RPM based distro's asked for a root password to be set - yes it allowed an normal user to be configured, but I still see this as encouraging usage of root. Not sure if this has changed as I've pretty much stuck with Ubuntu and Debian.
