    You do realise there are plenty of free offerings for Windows that do the same thing?

    Absolutely-I was only referring to things out of the box. There are also plenty of Mac related offerings as well. All I was trying to point out is that at least out of the box, Windows 7 cannot really be claimed to be more secure that Mac OS X out of the box.

    Well some versions of 7 will and some not. Just like how OS X doesn't have all the features of OS X Server Edition.

    Drive and file encryption isn't required to protect the OS from outside attacks, only outside-of-system reading of user files.

    File and drive encryption is really an enterprise level feature, so that users can take secure and confidential information off premises without worry of data theft, the average home user has no need for it.
