Ever wonder: What is Root? Why do people want Root? How does Root work? How would I obtain Root? How to verify Root?

These are the names of the sections in All About Root as the topics are answered in accurate and helpful detail. Definitions are provided, sources are cited, and links are given.

The goal is to help all users understand more about root. This application is at an early stage of accomplishing this goal. After a lot of research and experience helping many many users understand what root is, why people want to root, how root works and some of the common methods taken for obtaining root access, I have put everything together into one simple application.

A "technical" section has been added to cover some of the more detailed and technical aspects of root including ownership and permissions, along with setuid and setgid attributes.

Please let me know via email, IRC, or posts on the common forums, whether the information is helpful, unhelpful, missing details, contains too many details, etc. I appreciate all feedback. Thank you for your support and reading all of my description!!!
