(I do personally wish sudo > *was* the default though) There was an argument about this a while back. One side argues that sudo provides no additional security thus should not be default, the other side (well, me at least) argues that sudo adds convenience and helps reduce foot-shooting. Which is why I'm in the habit of running admin commands to get the help page as non-root. My foot has some ugly scars... :) I'm inclined to agree sudo doesn't necessarily add security. But sudo is *in* the distro, and it's clear a lot of people use it. Just because it's not default does not mean its usage does not deserve consideration.
