Please note that generally, allowing remote root logins is not a recommended security practice.

comment How to make user passwords shown as a clear text in Linux?
it is not true that passwords are stored in /etc/passwd. At least not in the past ~20 years, since /etc/shadow was invented. The 'x' you see there is not the encrypted password. It is a literal 'x' which can not possibly match any MD5 or SHA1 etc sig.

comment What is the difference between these two SSHD configs?
I mean that just by reading the man pages, Raza's answer sounds correct. Of course, to really be sure someone should actually verify it before answering :)

comment What is the difference between these two SSHD configs?
@HaukeLaging, are you really sure about this? The Match section in sshd_config(5) and the PATTERNS section in ssh_config(5) seem to disagree with this accepted answer by my reading of them.

comment What is the difference between these two SSHD configs?
The openssh man page says By default, login is allowed for all groups this seems to imply that * at the beginning is redundant because it is the default, and !root is the same as *,!root.

comment Subtract 1 from all file names (rename them) in a directory.
replace the * at the end with `ls -v1 *` and you'll be safer from clobbering. It'll go from the lowest number to highest.
