Just curious how many people choose to use bitlocker or not. The SP3 could easily be stolen but with it such a closed up system, I would assume most thieves would be more interested in reformating the harddrive versus trying to tear up the SP3 and extract the harddrive to read the data. Thus, is a Windows password secure enough to prevent this scenario? I have read that Bitlocker does not have a noticeable performance hit, thus, are are any good reasons not to use it? Does it play well with most software? Thanks.
