In this answer that I helped in reformatting, you can see reference to privilege gained by using
gksu, etc are referred to by administrator privileges (by me) and superuser privileges (by author). What is the proper reference to the privileges?
IMO, I don't think it should be root privileges because, even using
sudo, there are some restrictions. And superuser sounds improper and does not give a real meaning, being one of the terms .
Please share your opinion on the matter.
