Windows "Windows XP became the most effective Microsoft Bob deployment tool ever developed. And if you go way back into your closet, dig out your copy of Windows XP, and can somehow channel the right spirits to mash your hands on the keyboard in exactly the right way, then out of your encryption program will come a copy of Microsoft Bob."

That was probably the network login. Passwords for local users wouldn't do any good anyway with no filesystem security.

Nope, it was user passwords. Win9x did have those though as you rightfully point out there were useless. The network login and user password dialogs worked the same way and even looked the same for the most part, and both were about as insecure is you can get.
