Re: Sudo this, sudo that...

I've tried to make Linux my everyday OS a few times but it always becomes a dead end deal, with the vague fix seeming to be...reinstall everything. Hmmmmm.

Well, they have been trying to emulate more popular desktop OSes... they'll probably have succeeded when you need to reboot three times to install a sequence of updates and then make random updates to the registry before reinstalling everything anyway.

There was a time when the only changes that required a reboot to apply were non-module kernel changes and possibly libc.

As for the title, much easier to just run as admin all the time, amirite!?
