(Things would break right? UID 0?) Knowing the account name
is two-thirds of the battle.
In windows it's fairly easy to change the admin name.
Not a professional here just curious...

There is such a thing as "runas" for Windows.
Yes, but is *the main design* of the system "run as a
mortal, and use
the 'runas' for those things that need more"?
Or is the *main design* "We'll just elect the first user as
Administrator, and include 'runas' in case somebody wants
to Do It The Right Way"?
