	It doesn't 'look like' a fork. It is a fork. And obviously it's
	not something they are hidding. So the previous comment from
	korpalski pointing out that it "looks just like a rebranded
	Truecrypt" is pretty stupid. 


	 What's the difference between TrueCrypt and VeraCrypt?

	 VeraCrypt adds enhanced security to the algorithms used for
	 system and partitions encryption making it immune to new
	 developments in brute-force attacks. It also solves many
	 vulnerabilities and security issues found in TrueCrypt.


	Who knows if that's really true, tho.

I personally use DiskCryptor.
