"Messing about"? It is REALLY REALLY simple, maybe even simpler than Debian,
to get a root login, if one really wants. I'm not talking "root login at
GDM" though. If that's what you want, then stick with Debian. IMO, the whole
root login thing is an area where Ubuntu made some good choices.

I doubt Mint would fix that sort of problem. In Mint, if something
fundamental is broken in Ubuntu, it seems to stay broken in Mint.

Also, Ubuntu 9.04 is significantly better than either 2008 release.
