There are many reasons to avoid run some as root!

1. If your machine is networked, someone could gain access to the program an get root on your machine. :(
2. If there is a bug in the program it can crash you whole system.
3. If you are root, you can make mistakes that affects the whole system. ( example: 'rm -rf /' - NEVER TRY THIS!!! It would delete your complete system!)

You should get a Linux-Tutorial and read it. Google will be your friend!

Dear andreas59
Thanks a lot.It's so useful for me.
You know I'm beginner and try to learn a new thing about Ubuntu and EMC.
My problem is:
when I try to install Ubuntu, After inter a live cd, my system crash and I can't to install Ubuntu independently so I have to install windows and then install Ubuntu in windows. :(
so I have to run EMC as a root user.

Good Luck
Faran
