but it still works ...

Actually, sudo su - is probably a habit for many people (it is for myself) and can be problematic when I'm on a system I don't actually have sudo on, but have the other user's password. There is always more than one way to do it, as they say. (And no, this does not require your root password - unless you have somehow changed your sudo or su so that UID 0 can't su to root w/o a passwd.)
