Fortunately, the computer is 100% useful without having root graphical
logins.  Anyone who thinks otherwise is failing to think of the actual
problem (I need to do task X) and is instead only thinking of an old
solution (just login as root).  Everything you can possibly do by
logging in as root at GDM can be done some other way, in both a more
secure *and* a more convenient manner.
