comment How is sudo intended to be used?
Whether sudo requires the root password or the root password depends on the configuration. It can be set up either way.

comment How is sudo intended to be used?
Whether or not a password is required when using sudo depends entirely on how the sudoers file is set up. It can be set up to require a password or set up to not require a password.

comment Linux distribution that offers a good KDE experience
It's been a while, so I don't remember all of the details, but dealing with deb files was definitely worse than rpm files as far as multilib stuff went, and the GUI programs that they had for managing packages were quite poor. At that point, I was used to YAST, which is pretty much the king of GUI package managers, so it was a definite downgrade. All around, it was just harder to deal with than what I was used to. Having messed with Gentoo and Arch since then, it might not be so bad now, but at the time, I really didn't like it. But I don't remember much in the way of details now.

comment How to convert a PDF file to a DVD movie?
Now, this is a novel question. I've wondered how to get the data out of a DVD's files where you have a slideshow as one of the extras on the disc, but I've never wondered how to create one, let alone from a PDF.
