@sati In my mind i got the Ubuntu'esque picture of "within Downloads, right click this folder, encrypt, right click also that andwhatnot folder and encrypt, leave others be". This kind of approach makes it DE related. We'll get more info on this soon of course.

Ring is a privacy-focused, open-source Skype alternative. GNU Ring is a cross-platform, privacy-minded communication app that is fast gaining a following in FOSS and security-conscious circles --> omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/06/ring-l

@sati This is part of Ubuntu's transformation / progress overall now that the actual desktop is given more attention than in a long long time. Gnome now the default for stock Ubuntu and System76 as keen supporters of the ideals of Ubuntu, always lending a hand to make it even more convenient for the end user. 18.04 LTS is most definitely something to look forward to.

System76's engineer Jeremy Soller announced that he's been working on bringing encrypted Home folder support in the GNOME desktop for the upcoming Ubuntu 17.10 (Artful Aardvark) --> lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubun

@OdaNobunaga Indeed. There is also for example Ring, Telegram and Tox.

@sati Yes, they are all in for rock solid stability from ground up.

@sati Update: Fedora and Debian already have hardware acceleration. But for video playback, it depends on the format. MP4 is now shipped with Fedora and other codecs can be obtained from the repositories.

@sati Defaulted, none that i know of. It has been to do with driver performance / stability. Ubuntu seems to be up for it now.
