That is true and untrue.
You can SUDO (if you have permission) and it will work.
The problem is that it is temporary.
After the next startup, the owner will revert to the original owner.
You need to run as ROOT to make this permanent.

Been there, done that and have the T shirt.

users this ability with Linux.  Is that true?
