You normally will have a plain user and root, and typically both

Typically?  Well, they're only the same if you make them the same.

The default in YaST nowdays is both the same password.

Really?  I wasn't aware of that.  I'm sure I did a Factory install
just the other day and still had to enter two passwords.

Rapidly? It's been like that for a while now... at least early
2008... https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=381420

Just for clarity on what this is about... on the Create New User
screen of the installation wizard, there is a check-box that is
checked by default: Use this password for system administrator

ah, got it, thanks Clayton. Yes, that is of course the first I always
untick. It's obviously become so ingrained that I forget I do it :-(
