I am selling my little laptop.  Should I reinstall the operating system,
which I presume would be a better way to remove my files (albeit imperfect)
or should I just change the user name/password?

If the latter should I make a new user then delete myself as user? would
that delete my files?

What are the commands to change user name and password?
