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

Rapidly? It's been like that for a while now... at least early

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
