Is Using Sudo Like Using a Safety Net?
I just learned how to include my name in the sudoers list and have been enjoying using sudo for commands that require root.
My question is, what is the advantage if I use sudo in commands that are suppose to be executed as root. If I make a mistake using the sudo option in execution of commands and screw-up my environment. Will I be able to undo the mistake since the command was not executed as real root (su -)? Or "roll it back" so to speak?
Thank you for any clarifications! :)
