Pro tip: You can log into macOS High Sierra as root with no password

"Would you have root in linux with no password ?"

Ubuntu & derivatives. No password but root logins disabled. You're supposed to use sudo and re-enter your own password so if you're in sudoers and someone gets your password they've got root. Wonderful. I don't often use Ubuntu these days.
