super user

The super user is typically a user account on a computer system that has system administration privileges. This means that they can typically accomplish any software setup task that is required.

"In operating systems which have the concept of a superuser, it is generally recommended that most application work be done using an ordinary account which does not have the ability to make system-wide changes."

At sudo we perform these setup tasks for you so that you can do the tasks you need to do without worrying about what is happening in the background.
