So this is something that keeps coming up in my tech circles.

I LOVE not having to type a password every ten minutes, but why is it ok in puppy to NOT use a root password, but a security risk in something such as Ubuntu or Centos?

Can someone explain this to me again?

Edit: Homeblend found a good thread from 2005. Laughing
