    RE: linux mint 14
    You can install some Linux users without requiring a password. However, there are certain operations, such as software update, modifying hardware configuration, or manipulating files that are not your own, that will require administrative user capability. You are the only user, so when it comes to running an administrator task, you will be asked for a password. For what it is worth, you should create a regular user, that is, a second logon, which is a normal (non administrator) user. Use this logon to learn more about the system and to protect the system from modifications that only a knowledgeable user should perform.
