I'd suggest that anyone who sets up a system without any user accounts
_and_ somehow needs a GUI to configure the system _and_ can't manage
to figure out the settings to change so they can login as root should
probably not be pretending to be a competent administrator.

Are there not enough examples from Windows of why it's a terrible idea
to run with full administrator privileges -- especially software like
web browsers?
