Subject Re: Setup & development software for Macs?
Date Thu, 27 Jun 2013 03:47:33 GMT
I tested disk I/O before and after enabling FileVault and couldn't really
tell the difference.  I also turned it on after I had quite a bit of stuff
on the disk and it didn't take all that long to convert (considerably less
than all night).

Leave the firewall on.  It is very easy to poke and then repair holes when
you need them.
