In a regular multiuser UNIX system, with important data stored on it,
this is right. In muLinux, designed to work in RAM, in single user
mode, as rescue and experimentation, this not the problem.

muLinux works accessing resources and command using scripts; scripts
requires *power* in order to achieve 50% of desiderata.
Example: to access in /proc requires ofter high privilege.

Anyway, using root in muLinux give you the same access to filesystems
that you regularly have on Windows; nothing magic.
