What computer ships with a bios password as a default?
If you take steps to secure your stuff then that does not enter into this
discussion really. People are pissed off about the default configuration and
that is what I am talking about.
A configuration, btw, that is trivially easy to change.
People's reaction to this is just stupid.

What distro ships with encrypted drives as the default?
FC11. At least it was so easy to do during the install it might as well have. So, I needed to know darn little to set that up. Certainly less than I need to know to turn this off.
