A little over a week ago I picked up my new mac pro. So far I am absolutely loving it. Even with all the "teething" problems of switching over from a Windows box. When I first set it up, I only made the one user account. I've spent the week setting everything up the way I like it. Now through reading on the forums here, I see that it's a prefered practice to have your root account only to install and modify the system and then have a standard account for general use. Is it really that necessary? I am the only one to use this computer and I have no worries about anyone else getting on it and changing anything. Plus part of my hesitation in setting up a standard user is the headache of getting all the settings to my liking yet again. Also when I did set up the other account, I can't access the extra drives in my system. So should I just bite the bullet and go through the headache of setting everything up again or am I fine just using the root account since I'm the only one who uses my system anyways?
