As someone who hates passwords with a passion, why do I have to create 1 password that never gets used and gives no more capabilities than my user password? I find I end up using sudo often. (Mostly installing and updating, and also mounting removable drives.) I even created an alias so I wouldn't have to type "sudo" each time I install an update, but I still have to enter my password every update (which, on Arch Linux, are fairly frequent) and I have to use a different command if I'm just looking up packages.
On my desktop, my root password is weaker than my user password, though used to be stronger (barely) before I changed my user password to something longer than 1 character. Now my root password is far weaker than my user password. Its obviousness is the only reason I still know it, or at least I thought so. I don't remember ever changing my root password since installing, but it won't let me log in with what I thought was the root password. Which, by the way, is "root" (or so I thought) because I am terribly uncreative and care more about getting setup over with than security.
Is there any way to just have 1 password for 1 user? I feel like many linux systems assume it's being run by an administrator and multiple other accounts, when I'm just a user and hacker suddenly tasked with administrative duties.
The only user on my machine added manually other than my main account is an account for playing with linux from scratch, meaning that I have 3 accounts for a single person on a single machine.
