    From 2011 to 2013, I dual-booted, and the only problems I had were with Windows 7.

    Try this instead:

    [ubuntu] Re: Software installation as root user

    You shouldn't create a root account, as you've probably figured out. A user account still has temporary "Super User" access, and running as root is dangerous.
