Question and answer
Q: • In what ways does the Linux® setuid feature differ from the setuid feature in standard UNIX®? In what ways is the Linux® implementation preferred?
A: On Linux systems, you can successfully chmod u+s $some_directory, but instead of forcing the ownership of new subdirectories and files to be the owner of the containing directory (and setting subdirectories u+s as well) as you might expect, [ the system just ignores the setuid bit. Subdirectories and files continue to inherit the UIDs of their creating processes, and subdirectories are not
setuid by default. ]
