    that's not important if you make bob with Users and Groups

    Code:
    -, -l, --login
               Provide an environment similar to what the user would expect had
               the user logged in directly.
    
               When - is used, it must be specified as the last su option. The
               other forms (-l and --login) do not have this restriction.
