The SSD I wanted is now unavailable entirely. I must now choose between sacrificing performance or capacity. Should I buy a 1 TB mSATA or 512 GB NVMe SSD instead?

With the amount of back up capacity you have, do you need that much storage?  If not, then performance, no?

It would be nice to have 1 TB of storage in the laptop itself so I can carry more around. Whichever trade-off I make, though, I will be able to upgrade either capacity or performance later.

That said, I chose the 512 GB NVMe SSD for the lower latency, especially since I plan to share my home directory between OpenBSD and Fedora as an ext3 filesystem, which means I can't use soft dependencies on OpenBSD, which means that all metadata operations are synchronous.

According to Australia Post, my new SSD should be arriving tomorrow. Finally!

Well, my SSD does not have usable self-encryption in the way I expected. I have ordered a different one and must now wait another 3-4 weeks.

This is going to be my primary work laptop. Even if we assume that there aren't legitimate reasons to care about random thieves being able to access my personal data if it gets stolen (which there are), I'm not going to be that guy that leaks my employer's IP.

Yeah or maybe stop working for an employer with illegal shit to hide.

I finally have a self-encrypting SSD that works. I have installed Fedora and OpenBSD onto it.

Now just to migrate my data.

I'm in no rush. OpenBSD doesn't yet fully support this hardware in any case, though it's usable. I just wanted to buy it while it was on sale.

Today, I synced all my files over and shut down OpenBSD on my old desktop for the last time. It's now just a Windows 10 gaming PC until I get rid of it.
