Needed admin privileges on a Linux machine at work the other week. Was amazed at how easy it is to boot into a terminal as root and add yourself to the sudo group.

Superb.

Hahaha, suck it cyclists!

Takes me about 3 months of clicking “remind me tomorrow” before I update anyway, but thanks for the heads up. I might go and set a password for root anyway as I don’t use it.

No.

Macs do not get viruses.

They can do. But it’s much less likely. There have been viruses, worms, and other issues at places I’ve worked. Though not for at least ten years now.

No worries, I was more explaining why I’d not responded to it, I suppose: lack of surety! :grin:
