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."

superuser == UID 0 == root

When you run an app using sudo, you are running it as UID 0. Well, UID 0 on every Linux system out there is root.

Just because you can't login as root directly or use su, does not mean you aren't running processes as root or that the root account doesn't exist.
