Ok, thanks for the update. In fact it is reassuring to read that interview, I mean to see
that they actually have people who know what they are doing. Even if their solution still
isn't as paranoid as it could, be it's assuring to see that they know it's an issue.
(Compare: I know I shouldn't use perl, but I still do occasionally, because it's often the
easiest way out.)
But since you/we have brought it up, have you ever tried to log in as root in Mandrake?
First of all, it's not easy, since root is not an option in the kdm login screen. And if you
are still stubborn enough to get logged in (via startx or by adding root to the list of kdm
users) You are greeted with an annoyingly red background and a message box telling
you to immediately log out and start using a normal user account. This is more than
most other distributions do. Nice to know that somebody cares about me.
