Well if hacking Windows cold across a tcp/ip service such as web this may be
helpful, but it doesn't require  much more than that to figure out what the
admin account is for a given machine.


Let me choose if I even want a browser loaded thanks!

Are you able to change root's name in nix? Why not if the answer is no?
(Things would break right? UID 0?) Knowing the account name is two-thirds of
the battle.
In windows it's fairly easy to change the admin name.
Not a professional here just curious...
