System76 Wants to Offer Full Disk Encryption for Its Ubuntu-Based Pop!_OS Linux

It would appear that System76 is collaborating with elementary’s Daniel For?? on a new installer, which will offer full disk encryption support, for the next major release of their Ubuntu-Based Pop!_OS Linux distribution, which is coming this spring based on Canonical’s Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system. System76 is known as privacy- and security-focused OEM, and their goal for the future is to deliver Linux PCs that are encrypted by default. They worked around any challenges they’ve encountered with the implementation of full disk encryption into the installer, and managed to create a better experience for installing Pop!_OS Linux.
