Macs don’t need third-party utilities like TrueCrypt to create a secure, encrypted container for your sensitive files. You can create an encrypted disk image using the built-in Disk Utility.
Seeing articles like this makes me want to switch to Mac even more.
Windows has Bitlocker, which does something similar: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/bitlocker.
Personally, I would use TrueCrypt anyway. That way I could transfer the secure container between computers and not be bound to one OS. (Actually, I do use TC every day. I run my VM's on TC-encrypted volumes - about 2 TB worth.)
Does Mac OS X only have this option in "Professional" and above?
