If it is still default I keep whining :(
All new users being automatically promoted to root from day one sounds
bad IMHO I can't help it.
Promoted to root? In what way?
It is just the password that is the same.
Users have no greater rights then before.
OK. So I won't give root privileges to a user. Just the root password?
The user is a user that has root password. What does that make him/her?

The option is useful for single user machines where user and root is the same person, so nothing to hide or give. The default is intended for beginners.
It can be an option. Why default?
Does openSUSE want to be as much windows-like as possible?
So the new users feel at home?
Autologin and root password as default?

And if you have separate root password it's defaulted to be remembered when starting YaST.

Is this a good way to guide the new users to adopt windows behavior?
Do you think that later when they become more experienced they change back to the proper *nix way?
I strongly doubt that. This will steer to new windows kind *nix culture among new users.


Experienced users change much more during installation and uncheck one option should not generate so much noise (there was large thread about this).
I know. I started it then.
