    Windows 8: Android-like pattern logon screen demo


    A newly leaked video demonstrates Windows 8′s pattern based logon system.

    The video shows a Metro UI style Windows 8 logon prompt with a new pattern based password logon. The pattern system is similar to Google’s Android pattern passcode. Microsoft appears to be working on a pattern based system for devices with a touch screen. Elements of the Windows 8 login process have previously leaked, including a video which demonstrates the tiled interface and larger easier to touch menu systems. The latest video was posted at compixels on Friday.

    I wonder if that's a particularly British insult? It's certainly used a lot in my local area.

    Funniest thing I ever saw was in a stately home, the menu had "Richard head waiter" written on it. I was only a kid but was rolling up

    Windows 8 Pattern Logon


    A video was uploaded to the popular video hosting website YouTube the other day that demonstrates a new feature called pattern logon. It basically replaces the standard password with a pattern based login in which you have to click on, or touch, squares in a specific sequence to log on.

    I supposed we can have both pattern based and text based password? Just like we have the option for fingerprint / text based today?
