comment What should I expect if I switch from Ubuntu to openSuse
For the described "odd" behavior of su: su alone only gives you root privileges, the current environment and PWD stays the same. su - puts you in a fresh environment and into root's home directory.

This question is also interesting in the context of using Tor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tor_(anonymity_network). Tor exit nodes can spy data, such as passwords, and can potentially perform man in the middle attacks. Therfore Tor users need a way for routing only part of the traffic through Tor.

I see your edit. I happened to have pointed you to the right part of the documentation file. A "Primary Domain Controller" is a central instance that stores login information for Windows computers (IMHO).

@Axel: It could be his own kid, or his kid's friend. Because it's quite simple, it might be tempting just to try it.
