I've recently gotten a lot of flack from a couple of people for an innocent comment I made about logging into a machine as root.
I'd like to think of myself as pretty savvy when it comes to security, and as far as I'm concerned, the reasons for not logging in as root are:-

Ok, so we have the reasons not to - and they're good reasons. This is why, generally, I don't login to my boxes as root. However, the box in concern mitigates the above in the following ways

Is there any good reason that I shouldn't be logging in as root in the above circumstances?
