So I ought to let people steal my passwords because the most sensitive data that you will have on your Pyra are game saves? That is not sensible.I clearly disagree. The most sensible data I'm going to have on my pyra will be ... my game saves. No need to crypt this.
I do not have that vision. For example, I do not need encryption on my Android devices. But I am going to use the Pyra for more stuff than only games.I never understound this vision "everything should be encrypted secure and stuff" It's only worth it *if* you have data to secure, else all you do is reduce your performance and add failure points..

I was actually thinking about just reinstalling the OS. That is how I did it with my laptop. I just upgraded from Windows to NixOS and encrypted my disk in the process. I am not talking about encryption by default, I am just saying that I want encryption. But I have no idea how hard reinstalling PyraOS with LUKS encryption will be.But how do you want that to be ? If the disk is encrypted from factory then ED would have the keys to all the Pyras. Isn't it better to let every one encrypt it by themselves ? You could have some installer that generates the key before installing, but isn't that overcomplicated ? How do you know the installer isn't sending the key elsewhere ? I like encrypted devices, but I don't like the manufacturer doing it. And if I was ED I wouldn't want the responsability either.
