 Essential Sudoers

I have not been able to make up my mind if sudo is the root of all evil or a cool and useful tool. This article talks about using its power for good.

"The sudo (superuser do) command is a very useful and powerful part of the OS X unix underpinnings. It gives the ability for certain users to execute some or all commands as root while logging these activities providing a clear bread-trail of who did what to the machine."
