Although the line of "root password required" is (IMHO) a great place to
divide the guides, there may be a call for a *short, sweet* "Getting

the differences between the roles of user and administrator.




It has been pointed out before but any tool that requires a password for a desktop functionality is broken. We should divide by functionality. Not by whether it requires a root password or not



Can you give some examples? I am trying to figure out which tools this
would apply to. I don't recall getting password prompted for anything
which *wasn't* a global system setting change that would affect other
users on a managed system.


I was talking about a general idea, not specific bugs
