Then you should know that there are normal mortal users and the super- 
user (and more complicated situations). Even a micro company in the  
Rocky Mountains sells such a discriminating OS.

Since you are an administrator on your Mac you are allowed to  
successfully use the sudo command on the command line that gives the  
following command elevated privileges.

When planets do it we say they are orbiting.
