Repl.it users can't access root, sorry 😓

@aksubacct
Actually there is no root password, so no way to access root ;)
If you want some softwares, try polygott and install-pkg

@21natzil Makes sense, who knows what we'll do with it?

@HarperframeInc In fact, when you run a repl, you are in a kind of virtual machine, no way to escape it and to break replit ;)
