Just to say that I agree with the points Luke makes. Full-disk
encryption is essential for a lot of media producers - I would go as far
as to suggest that it should be the default for any new installation.
This would also give US an edge over some of its rivals, for example the
otherwise excellent AVLinux can't/won't install over luks/dmcrypt/lvm2.
I've only noticed a performance hit when using massively multitracked
ardour sessions (which I now do on an unencrypted partition that gets
shredded after mixdown), but for routine use on a modern machine the
bottlenecks for data transfer seem to be elsewhere.
Keep up the good work everyone - thanks for all of it.
