    Really enjoyed the read. Thanks.



    Linux Mint 17.2 Rafaela

    ? ---- Haven't looked at it under the hood yet but how strong is the installer for "Partition Only" (not device) LVM on LUKS Encryption?

    Palancar, I haven't explored those options too much, so I can't say.

    Thanks Mrkvonic. I'm paying more attention to distros End Of Life dates these days. In the past I've had machines bork after an OS upgrade. Not to give away too much one of the top distros mentioned has a 01.2016 EOL while another is 04.2019. With most distros homepages & even Distrowatch I have to dig for the EOL dates. I think EOL dates should be front & center on home pages, reviews, Distrowatch, direct & torrent links.

    I haven't explored these options either but I always do custom installs in multibooting setups and the options are good if you know how to deal with this sort of setup. One thing that occurred to me is to set the /home folder on its own partition and have it encrypted. I haven't tried it yet but I'm going to the next time I do a Linux install. I always have separate system and data partitions in Windows and this seems like simple way to do it with Linux.

    And again thanks. I've done two installations of Rafaela so far. I've got Rosa downloaded and was planning to try it soon so now I'm looking forward to the review on it.
