Re: Encrypt file systems ?

While this has been brought up, in case anyone might find this useful, I tested Windows Bitlocker personally a couple of years ago and found a similar overhead (actually between 3-5%, IIRC). So: Linux or Windows - it's worth it.

It's also worth checking that any new workstation or server systems being ordered (for business, at least) have TPM chips fitted.
