difference ?

What's the difference between 'su -l' 'sudo -i' and 'su -' ?

And preferred environment to be in during updates? --IainD 02:39, 9 January 2008 (EST)

Those are identical. "su -" is traditional. It's the least to type. "su -l" exists because some committee got bothered by the weird command syntax of an option/flag/switch thing that isn't actually there. "sudo -i" exists because some people get the illogical idea that replacing su with sudo will increase security even if that means making sudo act like su. AlbertCahalan 03:10, 9 January 2008 (EST)
