Bug Description

the 20101004-0 alip daily has a default user called 'linaro' who is in the admin group and so can run sudo, but the password is 'linaro', which you have to guess. Perhaps it would be better to have the user have no password and able to invoke sudo without a password? (This is what the set up is on the official ec2 AMIs, for example)

There's been some discussion in #linaro about this particular "fee-chure" ... should there or shouldn't there be a password. There doesn't seem to be a consensus.
