in thread Greetings and salutations | sudo
What I see happening is the "Windowsification" of linux, where users ( or the distro makers ) wants to dumb down the user. I see no problem with a user switching to a root console to install a package, the use of sudo is a glaring root security hole. Any user with sudo can become root and backdoor a system, how convenient for the 3 letter agencies. :-)
Another alternative, is installing packages in the user's home directory if they are not root.
