Caution: Do not rename a user's home folder
Authored by: Fairly on Jul 21, '07 11:55:04AM

The one thing you do not want to do is have an activated root account. If you know how to make a disabled but active root account (logs in to false) and set sudo to require the root password - yes that is safer. But otherwise the OOTB config is a lot safer and having a root account lying around is really asking for it. And anything you need to do you can do from a sudo -s session anyway.
