A regular on a private list I follow has written :
[...] therein lies the beauty of the newer flavors of *nix. You
can lock root (and SU) access to physical machines ONLY, and
even lock it down to specific logins ONLY on specific machines.
How would Fedora do that?
I wouldn't want it any PC on my LAN, because I do 99 44/100% of
the updating and general administrivia on a couple of them remotely over
ssh; but it sounds like a good thing to have on any laptop or tablet that
spends much time on wifi.
