    Well, it *allows* you to change the ID of the superuser account to something
    else. But of course that is obfuscation, and is quickly discovered (just
    check what ID owns /bin/* and so on). Nevertheless, you have the *ability*
    to change the ID. You can't do that with Windows. 
    (Yeah, cheap shot I know... ;)
