Disadvantages of setting a root password?
I was just wondering: are there any actual disadvantages to setting a root password in Ubuntu...especially if you re-disable the root account after setting the password? Setting a root password would also render the password reset method mentioned in the article below useless, right?
P.S. I have no need to perform any actions that would require actual root access...I'm just wondering whether setting a strong password for root would be a good security measure or not...
