That is just a balloon in the system tray now in Vista.

Sometimes it takes a while to think up a really good password (I'm told) -
staring around the room until you see a couple of objects whose relationship
you'll remember next time you log on.

Me, I always try to make sure that I don't change my password on a Friday.
By Monday, I'll have forgotten it.

Teach your users to obey the balloons.

Jesper, this can actually create a lockout-problem, because the password
does not expire on a given day, but on a given second. If the user logs
in at i.e. 7:30 am, and the password expires at 8:20 am, he will lose
access to some programs which require windows authentification, like OE
with Exchange, ISA-proxyservers, SQL-Servers etc.

Since I worked 5 years in end-user support, I have seen a lot of users
effectively locked out by this, especially if they reacted wrong and
tried just to force their way into these applications by reentering
their password into the authentification-popup of IE.

Makes a really good argument for reading what is in the dialogs, doesn't it?

I do sort of agree though. I don't really like this new design. The task bar
is WAY overloaded with crap that you don't care about. I'm running OneCare
right now and it is driving me up a wall telling me every three minutes that
it has set its firewall to restricted mode because it discovered a new
network, when in reality, it just dropped the wireless connection for me,
again.
