Nothing really new, here.   See, e.g., pnordahl's Windows password
reset disk:

Linux is even easier.  Typically, all you need to do is add 'single'
to your boot options and you're up and running in single-user mode.
If the distro puts a password on single-user mode, there are simple
ways to bypass that, as well.

If you don't have physical security, you don't have security.
