A random password is not any stronger than a disabled, that is unusable, password.

This feature now [[!taglink todo/wait]]s for [[TailsGreeter]].
Random Password at Boot + TailsGreeter
======================================
How about randomly generating a root password at boot and having [[todo/TailsGreeter]] run as root allowing TailsGreeter to set a root password if a user gives one? If the user opts out of providing a root password, the randomly generated one stays, therefore being a bit more secure than leaving root's password as none.
Gentoo uses this for its Live/InstallCD and you have to change the root password during the installation or you will forever have an unknown, randomized root password.
