And did I mention it installs from a single CD?

Just like Windows and see what that brought us!

Resisting the PGP Whole Disk Encryption Craze

GoulDuck Re:Encryption is good for security, bad for perfor (480 comments)

Catch is, USB drives are way slower than hard drives. As in, 2-3 orders of magnitude slower. It could be that the USB is a bigger bottleneck than the encryption.

True. But my tests shows that I am able to pull around 170 MB/s in TrueCrypt benchmark, so the disk will always be the bottleneck.

When developing and testing virtual computers, USB speed is fine.

Resisting the PGP Whole Disk Encryption Craze

GoulDuck Re:Encryption is good for security, bad for perfor (480 comments)

TrueCrypt claim a 1% overhead. With multi-processor machines, I doubt that's even accurate anymore.

Yeah - with version 6 of TrueCrypt, they introduced support for multiple cores, with almost double speed on a dual core system over a single cores system.

I use a TrueCrypt encrypted USB disk to store and run VMWare virtual machines and I see no difference in speed over using a non-encrypted USB disk (same model).
