I like the first one, where you change the username to root more, but...
I tried doing that icon in the text entry in firstboot, but people
didn't like it, because if you don't have an icon in one of them (like
you don't in the username one), then the text is not aligned. Also what
does that Full Name icon check for?
I also learned that the warning icons are intrusive, and not everybody
knows he can hover his mouse over it, and see a tooltip, so they have no
idea why there's a warning.
This is what I did to firstboot then
There are no warning icons, just an apply icon, if everything is OK.
And I also think, we could change that password strength label to a
progress bar with text indicating the strength level.
