How to change the password in ubuntu

How to change the password in ubuntu?

Changing the password in UBUNTU was like a challenge for me. because I had been doing it the manually. I used to go to
and then change the password for the user.
But when I reboot, the changes would not work!

Today, I was able to do it by going to terminal. This makes me feel little more comfy because, now I do have same password for WINDOWS and UBUNTU as well.

1. to change the root password
sudo passwd
enter password

2. to change the user password
passwd user
