About to attempt setting up Void Linux with full disk encryption. Wish me luck.

Progress update #1: I've learned a fuckton already. Working with Linux is really fun. Maybe accidentally encrypted my UEFI partition, but the computer survived a reboot so I think it's ok? Now moving on to creating my filesystem. EXT4 seems to be the standard, BtrFS seems to be the Wayland to EXT4's X11, and XFS is the author's preference in the Void docs. Open to suggestions.

Holy shit. I've done it. Eight hours, one installation of Pop!_OS on a different machine, and like ten cups of tea later I have an FDE installation of Void Linux. I am root, and I am elated.

I get to put one of these :void: in my username now, right? xD
