    logged into shell as root and still uses sudo????? personally I try to type the least amount possible, tab is probably my most hit key, not only does auto complete save typing, but also reduces typos. Just make sure you have enough characters typed so auto complete knows what you are trying to do, or hit tab twice to see everything that you have available to you. works for executables in $PATH as well as files in ./
