Windows 8 to allow pattern-based logins?

Windows 8 to allow pattern-based logins?
According to a new video, Windows 8 will allow users to login/unlock their computers with patterns, just like Android and iOS devices do now.

Microsoft is expected to launch Windows 8 in mid-2012, for desktops and tablets. The OS will feature more cloud-based features, Kinect support, Zune music, and see a revamped UI.

Windows 8 will also have support for ARM-based SoC, alongside Intel x86 architectures, so a plethora of tablets are expected in 2012 featuring the OS.

So far, there has been a very early build leaked to torrent and warez sites, but most of the expected features are not included.

Video slightly NSFW:

    I knew Megaman 2 passwords would be useful for something eventually!

    They should have made it like hacking in wouldn't have been much less secure, and it would add a certain thrill when you are actually able to log in.

    Or better yet, they should just have a list of all the user names and passwords right on the login screen; it would hardly be a change from current windows security.
