Recently, I asked for opinions on desktop Linux. Thanks very much to those that replied. I’ve set up an old laptop as an experiment. I’m using Debian, Gnome, and Systemimager. It’s been an interesting project (especially getting SystemImager and a splash screen program to do what I want).
I’d like for my desktop machines to mount /home over the network. I could use NFS, but of course that has all the well-known security risks. Is there a better network filesystem that is easy to use, fast, and more secure than NFS?
