Ubuntu: Login as root

Many may say that one cannot login as root on Ubuntu. Maybe these have not used Slackware before. Simply run
[user@ubuntu:~]$ sudo passwd
to set a password for root, the super user. Then use that password to login as root:
[user@ubuntu:~]$ su root
and then enter the password you created. It's as simple as that!
