The fact that it is opensource is good in the sense that there is no "back-door" into the system, unlike (I suspect) almost all commercial stuff.

Of course I suspect that 99.9% of the people that are using it are just hiding porn on their PC......
TrueCrypt is good but not bullet-proof since you can hack the password.

Actually most USB drives are pretty easy to crack
But Spanky was not talking about 'most USB drives', he was talking about the IronKey.

Anyone see any evidence that Ironkey has been cracked?

At any rate, I doubt any of us has any info that is so important that thieves would go through a lot of effort to obtain it. It's like keeping your car locked, thieves will move to an easier target.
