What software should I use to encrypt my hard drive? [closed]

I am currently running Windows 7 RC x64 on my home system, and am interested in encrypting my hard drive. I've heard good things about TrueCrypt, but am curious what other folks might suggest. I primarily use my system for software development, so am concerned about any system performance degradation that encryption might introduce.

be implemented in future versions:

Full support for Windows 7"

"As you mentioned, there's TrueCrypt.

There's also PGP Whole Disk Encryption.

If you purchase Windows 7 Ultimate, you'll also have BitLocker built in, which is one of the few compelling features of Ultimate."
