Re: Are Password Managers Really Worth It?
I use KeePassX. I have too many different accounts and definitely don't want the same weak (relatively short) password anywhere. As we all know from XKCD, special characters don't matter, passwords just need to be long. The easiest is just to let KeePass or another tool generate a random long string for you. KeePassX is also quite nice to operate, just click on the entry and CTRL+C to copy the password (it will only stay on the clipboard for a short time).
If you use multiple platforms maybe you should look at LastPass to manage your passwords through a web interface (of course usable on all platforms you mention). KeePassX (Linux, and also Mac AFAIK) and KeePass (Windows) are also compatible as long as you use the .kdb database format (KPX can't reed KP's kdb2 format).
