I am a big fan of linux and like trying out new distros now and then. I usually have my home folders and roots in a lvm atop an encrypted partition, but this tends to become cumbersome with every initramfs creation process being more alien than the last one.
I value privacy, but most of my valuable information or personal is stored in the home folders. Moreover, I partitioned using GPT, so multiple partitions are not that hard to setup even outside a lvm.
So the question is: Is root crypting and lvm-ing of "/" worth it, especially with all the early userspace hassle I have to deal with?
