Passphrase vs. Passwords

There have been a lot of postings the last few months talking about the topic of passphrases vs. passwords and I have finally got around to reading them.

The following articles are very interesting reading and I highly recommend you take a look at them:

Why you shouldn't be using passwords of any kind on your windows networks...
The Great Debates: Pass Phrases vs. Passwords. Part 1, 2, and 3 of 3.

After having read the above I have all but switched to passphrases. I think they are going to be a move in the right direction for me (at least until more biometric type authentication is put into place). 

Well I need to go come up with a few passphrases now.
