Upgrade user option

Earlier this year, Next Tech migrated to using a new sandbox user called nt-user, versus the root user that had been used for years. This was done because in the real world, root is almost never used as the day to day user, so much so that many programs will complain if they’re run as root.

It also instills the false sense of constant superuser privileges, which makes it confusing when you use other environments where you need to provide commands such as sudo, which are not required if you’re root.

Older content that still uses root takes 2-3 extra seconds to launch while the user is being rolled back from nt-user to root, but now, there’s a way to upgrade to nt-user in just one click!
