Graphical Password

Do you think as i do? Text-based password is an old stuffs that still exists up to now, because it's simple but can be complicated as well, so many people tends to use it. Now, the graphical password has come and the simulation program is available from Reutgers University. It requires .NET Framework to be installed before running the program (i believe it was made by VB.NET or perhaps C#). It gives a new way to create a strong password and it makes a cracking process little bit harder, since most program uses a brute force method, which is unsuitable to be used here, since we had to click the icon in order to input our password. The icons were great and cool. It represent some Windows application, such as Mozilla, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Macromedia Dreamweaver, Quick Time, Adobe Reader, Netscape, and even Macintosh's logo are there
