FileVault!
Authored by: sbryan on Jun 28, '04 01:55:18PM

Well, now that I voted for XCode I wish I had made FileVault my choice. I was thinking how impressive it is that Apple makes its professional level development tools available to anyone able to buy a Mac (thinking here of all the college students). But the number able to take them up on the offer seems to be rather small. It may be free but it costs more than a little effort.

I think FileVault is definitely under-appreciated. With other multiuser systems (specifically I have XP in mind) the idea that there is any privacy between users is a joke. Most, if not all, the other features can be obtained without great effort from other systems. But FileVault is unique in its professional level of performance with almost no effort on the part of the user.
