comment How can I permanently grant root access to a user?
if something requires root, and you are annoyed at having to type in that command again, sudo !! is your friend, and UAC is microsoft's attempt to be more *nix like - same as the prompt for passwords.

@Reid, +1 - the windows way of allowing access to everything is not a secure route, but getting used to the way *nix works is quite an adventure (I've still not made the change... too much game play)

add another user and change that one to :0:0: - that way, you can choose to log in as root depending on which name you use on login
