1) Are there any downsides/problems with having home in root? It's just I'm working with a small usb (8gb) and I don't want to run out of space in one off them and have to repartition.
2) Are there any inbuilt tools for encrypting the os! I'm using my install for work and a USB is much easyer to misplace than a laptop, if not, what are some good tools, I've always used truecrypt with windows, but if there is anything better...
3) Ok, now for a verry nooby question, are packages downloaded into home or root?
Thank you verry much for your time and answers! And yes I have used google.
