I installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview (and some earlier versions as well) into a VM so that I could have a look for changes in password security. After quite a few screenshots etc from CP, I decided to wait for RTM, so that I wouldn't have to an entirely new one if there were major differences. I'm happy I did that. Lets take a look at what we get with Windows 8 in terms of password security.
