That was a serious breath of fresh nerdiness
I'm glad that there are people out there who are intelligent enough to tackle these kinds of issues and do so for the sake of my protection.
That said, I kinda doubt that "most people" encrypt their laptop drives. Most of the people I know who do have laptops have work laptops, and even they are not always using disk encryption, although their IT department should be pushing that.
As for private users, try and talk them into encryption and watch their eyes glaze over in real time.
No, sorry, I don't see it happening any time soon.
