    Yep. Debian and Fedora do the same thing - they'll warn but let the user choose.

    If more people were pointed to xkcd, this might not be an issue.

    Exactly. Demanding upper case, numbers and so on is what drives people to use one password all over without ever changing it because it would be impossible to remember.

    Re: Password Crazy

    Can anyone recommend a password manager or managers that work in both Linux and Windows?

    So, yes, I use some silly passwords and I'm using the same ones at a couple places.

    I use unique passwords for all my accounts. I use KeePassX but I usually don't change passwords unless there's news about something like the openssl bug.

    Last company I worked for (as a project coordinator) let me remotely log on to their computer system with the company laptop. Bloody password had to be changed every month, with both u/case, l/case, numbers and symbols used in the new password.. They told me I had limited system access, but I could access the whole system, including accounts, emails, personnel, wages, etc.
