Make me a sandwich. Ok!

I have to admit it: grew up with unix “the wrong way”. Instead of having decent user-accounts for every employee, all our work was done under the root-account. The main reason for this is that our software deployment system didn’t really worked the way it should and I guess nobody really cared. It worked.. login as root on our (private) systems and call the compile+install script… Furthermore, there were about 14 different unix-flavours available, and only 2 or 3 persons with access to them. Again, all internal systems just for compiling and testing. A good thing.. yes and no.. It feels like I started learning to ride a bike on a ATB instead of a tricycle I guess..
