Look what I found

I'm not sure that this is a good thing: should a user with minimal Linux experience be able to elect themselves as god? One more line of typing and there goes your hard drive.

The other explanation is that the IT guys who set up this machine gave me super dooper access rights, on the assumption that I could look after myself Linux-wise. If that's true, it's a clear case of Chuck Him In The Deep End, I can assure you.

It is great to have a real OS underneath, and the Mac's FreeBSD spinoff is still really close to mainstream Linux. Or at least that's the way it seems to a nervous dabbler.
