Im really happy with Ubuntu except for one aspect.

It prompts me for my user password to sudo tasks instead of running as root.


Obviously I can't keep using this since its dreadfully insecure, mightest well run as root if sudo passwd root can change the root password!


However it seems to have been compiled into bastardised Gnome/KDE apps. It looks like I will need to apt-get remove all these and replace them with standard Debian ones which respect the programmers....


If I do this I don't see why stick with Ubuntu since it needs gutting.???


any ideas or way to switch off?
