 Using Groups to Eliminate Root

On Lamp brings us: Using Groups to Eliminate Root.

"The root password can be a cause of contention in any organization. Many system administrators hate giving it out, even to people who are responsible for maintaining part of the system. If this sort of system administrator doesn't know how to properly manage things, this reluctance can keep people from being able to do their jobs. Many other system administrators hand out root to dang near anyone who wants to use it, and then complain when the system becomes unstable."
