Windows 8 will let you sign in using a Picture password

A day or two ago, the Windows 8 team announced that you will be able to sign in to Windows using a Picture password. What you have to do is choose an image, and then draw circles around figures and draw lines to one figure to another, but that has to be in order. Above is a snapshot of a frame in their video showing it off. Not any word on how you would sign in if you forgot your Picture password. That will be interesting to see how they do that. Also you should note that the picture password can run along side or replace your text password. So meaning, I can use my text or picture to sign in, or now I can just use a password to sign in.  Below is a video from the Windows Team showing it off. If you would like to see picture password, it is included with the Windows 8 Developer Preview.

Comments welcome.
