Running just "su" alone meremly changes your effective UID.
By default, it is to root, but could to to another user.
It does not alter HOME, SHELL, USER, LOGNAME, and PATH.
That last one is important. A real root shell expects to have /sbin & /usr/sbin
in the PATH
The only difference between su and su - is $USER is normal user for the former and is root for the latter.
