Multiple login accounts with root privileges

I was testing a thin client box and found that I could login as Root,
Administrator and Admin (all with the same password). whoami
indicated 'root' in all three cases. Is this some sort of aliasing
going on? I may not be entirely correct on this but shouldn't the
number of users with root privileges be restricted? What is your
advice on this issue?
Thanks in advance.
