What's wrong with 'sudo'ing? I dont see any harm there. In fact I see 'sudo' better than 'su'.
Haha..me too have problems with using sudo. When I tested ubuntu, I really hate the need to sudo with every command. As you might have guessed, that is because I come from using redhat based linux and very used to using root user. So, I end up enabling root user in ubuntu and use root to login to my server.
Don't tell me about the security problem because redhat has been doing that for years and no problem with it. As for making mistakes using root directly? Non so far with my 8 years of using root user in linux.
The thing is, sudo might be good if you don't use command lines a lot. But when you need to type tons of commands daily, imagine the amount of time to type sudo. Let's say 1 sec to type sudo everytime. 1 day you might be typing like 100 sudo commands. That's 100 secs. You work 5 days a week, that would be 500 secs a week and 2000 secs a month.
You have wasted 2000 secs a month just to type sudo? That's 33.33 minutes.
