Re: Linux root p/w

Not true, I'm a Linux sysadmin and none of the Ubuntu variants I've installed over the past 10 years have asked. You have to do this manually after install..

From what I've read in other responses, root logins are disabled. So you still have to consciously choose to have a passwordless root login.
