Say Goodbye to TrueCrypt

Apparently the developer of TrueCrypt threw in the towel this week.

The official site http://truecrypt.org redirects to http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/ where you’ll find instructions to migrate you TrueCrypt disk to Microsofts built-in solution Bitlocker.

The reason for all this is obvious, TrueCrypt can’t compete against Microsofts Bitlocker as their software comes with every Windows 8 version (withWindows 7 you had to have an enterprise license in order to use Bitlocker).
