I'd like to ask - is it possible to rename the user root? E.g. in Windows I used to rename it for
security purposes. If somebody would like to log in, then he/she already knows, that username is
Administrator and there's only password need to be guessed. But if I change also built-in
administrator name. then there should be two parameters to be guessed - username and password. Most
of bad guys don't know, that there's also username different. This kind of security would be useful
also in linux. Is it possible? Does it broke something in the system?
