@brandon For example, why the f*ck do I have to type my password 3 times every time I reboot my laptop? (once for disk encryption, once to log in, and once to unlock kwallet).
@codewiz @brandon I really wonder why there aren't more filesystem encryption solutions that automatically encrypt your entire home folder and decrypt it when you log in like Ubuntu's ecryptfs does... especially for distros like Fedora Silverblue where most of your stuff ends up in your home folder anyway
@yojimbo @codewiz @brandon yup. An encrypted laptop might be used by multiple people, so needs a secret that can be shared by those people. Logging into a desktop is another privilege, but if you want to protect your secrets on computers that you might occasionally leave sitting on a desk in an office, you might another layer of security. Someone accessing your desktop probably shouldn't also equal access to all your secrets.
@codewiz Funny enough, on macOS, encryption is almost invisible! I type in a single password on boot and I'm unencrypted, logged in, and my keychain is unlocked
