admingroup <reply> Up through Ubuntu 11.10, administrator privileges using sudo was granted to the "admin" Unix group. In Ubuntu 12.04, privileges are granted to the "sudo" group, for consistency with upstream and Debian. For compatibility, the "admin" group will continue to have access in 12.04. Added by tonyyarusso
