@elementary I look so much forward to that installer, and have sat with my fingers crossed for a long while now, that you will readd home encryption again
@RasmusLindegaard IMO home encryption is a trap & should not be offered by distros.
If I can tamper with your root fs & make your system send me your data, I don't need to break your home encryption. It's full disk encryption or nothing for me.
@ryanprior Full disk encryption then. You make a good point, guess i just never understood why encrypting / makes sense 🙃️👍️
@RasmusLindegaard elementary OS supports full-disk encryption today, and we are considering recommending it by default in the next major version. Details here: https://medium.com/elementaryos/secure-by-default-disk-encryption-3592bf25e3ce
@ryanprior Sure, this has not made it to the current installer though (unless i missed it's very recent release)
@ryanprior Well, at least in terms of being able to do full encrypt with custom partitioning. Or else i just never figured it out.
It does Irk me greatly to have a laptop that's not fully encrypted 😬️
@RasmusLindegaard that's the option that's available now, is to encrypt the full disk and use LVM. I don't recall what advanced options are there in terms of partitioning.
@ryanprior If you have several disks though, that's a pretty poor option imo 🤔️
@RasmusLindegaard I concede that's true. I just use one disk so I haven't hit that experience yet.
@elementary "Install elementary OS (if it didn’t come on your device already)" got something in the works I see ;)
