... treat it as a regular unencrypted drive and apply proper encryption on top. Next.

While true, the problem with that approach is that the SSDs compress the data you write to them to improve performance and wear-levelling. So, if you encrypt the disk at the operating system level, you lose all that.

Obviously, if most of your data is already compressed, it won't matter.

Sigh all you want. If people like you were willing to pay extra for the human touch, then there would be two tiers of tickets offered by airlines: self-checkin and human check-in. Human check-in would of course be an extra $100 or so. Still interested?

Yes, it's called 'Business Class'. I walk straight up to the checkin counter, hand over my bags, and they do the rest, so I don't have to worry about what passport I'm supposed to use this time, or whatever other nonsense has changed since I last flew.

Right, and eliminating every single government in the world will result in fewer people killing each other? Excellent hypothesis.

Governments murdered a couple of hundred million people in the last century, and threatened to murder billions on a few minutes' notice. Free market murderers would have to work pretty darn hard to keep up with that.

Brain off-line, please wait.
