The root User

The super user, root can do anything he wants, including erasing the system.

An average user does not have the necessary permissions to modify any system file. Any software he uses can't either, as it inherits the user's permissions (alhough there are exceptions).

The use of the system as the root user must be strictly limited to system administration tasks.
