Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "Canonical's Ubuntu 6.06 LTS is an excellent Linux-based operating system - so excellent, in fact, that it not only earned eWEEK Labs' Analyst's Choice designation but has also become our clear favorite among Linux desktop distributions. This latest Ubuntu release, which became available in June, has won our ardor with a tight focus on desktop usability; an extremely active, helpful and organized user community; and a software installation and management framework that's unsurpassed on any OS platform."

"Ubuntu has the sudo solution built into the underlying system so much that you cannot get fully rid of it and this blocks some administrative possibilities for a normal root acount."

I have a full root account in my Ubuntu just activating the root account by setting a password. I can perform *any* administrative things. I can destroy all my data with rm -rf / , or delete my partitions with fdisk or use nmap -O or install packages with apt-get or change kernel parameters in /proc. So tell how is that I don't have full root access while logged in as root (without sudo, just login as root user)...
