First of all -- thank you VERY MUCH for the rolling release distro for the masses. I don't care about Gnome/KDE/whatever, just bring 64-bit edition of it ;-D. Anyway, the implications of making LMDE (because of rolling release) can be huge, and thank you once more for making the difference. No more upgrades & headaches.
Basically, I can repeat myself:
Please give real security tools for the masses -- at the same ease as today setting password for user account. Password for account is only good if someone does not have access to hard disk, if someone does -- such password is no good at all.
So for me, any installer that offers ONLY password for account (with measuring strength of it) provides in reality false sense of security. I think in 5 years we will be all surprised how we could live w/o default disk encryption (or steganography).
I would suggest:
* providing option for encrypting the disk (default: ON)
* if ON -- encrypting all partitions with the same given password (by default)
In advanced mode user could of course set each password different (e.g. 3 different passwords for 3 partitions).
This way all it would take would be giving password and confirmation of the password. Behind the curtains, installer should make all necessary arrangements, so encrypting would not take 5 or 7 steps.
In short: the old Atari saying -- power without the price.
openSUSE has it, Fedora has it, Ubuntu (classic) does NOT have it -- it would be good to be another step ahead
