Use PGP/GPG to protect email accounts?

PGP is an interesting technology. But usability in the traditional use-case has often been criticised. But can it be used to secure emails in case the email account gets hacked, to reduce the risk of a “complete digital life takeover”? Here’s a thought experiment and an analysed candidate solution.

OS switcher

My latest hack is for dual-booters: The OS switcher lets you select the operating system (OS) you wish to boot at the flick of a switch, anytime. Booting the OS of your choice no longer requires you to sit in front of your computer, wait for a boot selection screen to show up, and then press some buttons at just the right time.
