Rename SA account in Sql Server

All Sql Server Administrators heard about SA account, how insecure it is and how many vulnerabilities exists that enable someone to break our Sql Server. Microsoft suggests using Windows Authentication Mode, instead of Mixed Mode. Mixed Mode exists only for backward compatibility. The safest solution would be to disable SA account and forget about the problem. However the world is not ideal and sometimes we have to use legacy 3rd party applications, which require Mixed Mode. In those situations we can rename SA account to make it harder to crack. Renaming Administrator account/s is a standard practice used by Windows Domain Administrators, so we will try to implement the same on Sql Server. We can rename SA account in Sql Server 2005 and Sql Server 2008.
