Hence the CTL-ALT-DEL log in feature of NT  (and later windows).    I
remember when the beta NTs came out and I loaded up countless floppies to
see the Windows NT "Preliminary" logo come up
and then a pop up telling me to type CTL-ALT-DEL to log in.

Well if you include that one, you may want to include the simple brute force
testing of passwords against /etc/passwd (before shadow files existed). The
login name and real names (direct or reversed) would tend to get at least
one hit.
