Faster User Switching of a different kind
Authored by: MacOSXAddict on Mar 16, '04 10:46:17AM

If I rember my *NIX correctly, SU stands for "S"witch "U"ser. Where as SUDO stands for "S"uper "U"ser DO (as in do something as the root/wheel/super user). But it has been years since my last *NIX class...
