I am using sudo.  In /usr/local/etc/sudoers I have

  %wheel  ALL=(ALL)       ALL

Even though I'm the only person logging in, I still prefer to just  
remember my password instead of having to remember root's.  Of course  
I have the root password nicely stored away somewhere in a password  
management system, it is one less password that I actually have to use.

I became a fan of sudo from my experience with Apple's OS X.
