So i know it's bad to run as root for normal usage, but for some usecases such as pentesting it's actually a pain to not run as root.
I'm running on ubuntu gnome with all the kali repos added in for the tooling. I'm not new to linux but im only about mildly experienced with pentesting.
Would it be bad to have normal user (user sign in I use for everyday stuff) as non root, then sign in as root for pentesting? Running as non-root is a pain, I end up with files I have to
chown constantly, programs which will only run as root due to it needs access to direct from the wire and having to enter my password every five seconds.
