Hello Biu,

Thanks for your input!

We’re not saying “users of encryption software are stupid or negligent“. We are, however, saying they are human!

I try to design software so that users tend to fall into the pit of success, i.e. being nudged, or even forced, in the right direction (according to me). I am actually not a believer in software that is too flexible and leaving all decisions up to the users. Every time an option or mode of operation is considered for AxCrypt, I try fight tooth and nail to find a way *not* to add such a thing.

This is also called opinionated software. AxCrypt has an opinion about how it should be used, which happens to coincide with my opinion… ;-)

So, here we’ll just have to agree to disagree – and you’ll have to take it or leave it or take the source code and change to work the way you want it to work.
