Should the root account be disabled in Fedora 18?

image description I came across this discussion HERE .

If I not choose a root password, how can i install a program? from a terminal.

sudo? su?

What happens if I run from a terminal the following:

su - root -c 'miprogram'

┬┐Will it work?

Or

will work my user , with privileges root?

su - myuser -c 'miprogram'

Or

Will we see the system with sudo?

sudo yum install yumex

Anyone know about this?
