Science fiction fans will get the irony of this blog title. For those who do not remember the 1980’s TV show Battlestar Galactica, the Cylons (artificial robotic lifeforms created by humans) would state, ‘By your command,” after a verbal command by their evil human leader, Baltar. This simple reply was only used for verbal commands, but Cylons, being machines, could have accepted commands in other forms, including what we consider in IT a “command line”. Since the Cylons would have to obey any and all commands from their human leader, they had a form of privileged access management since he alone could issue any commands. This would make him root (not groot – wrong sci-fi story, sorry).
