I've been using PGP since 1994, if not earlier. In more recent times
it's become a regular part of my workflow in discussing security
critical bugs. I am a programmer and a computing expert.

I do not consider the tools easy to use at all but I understand their
importance and use them with other people who understand their
importance, _in spite_ of the fact that they are burdensome. I am
large unable to get people who do not understand their importance to
use them. Or even if I get them to use them once, because the tools
require an effort to use on an ongoing basis they do not use them
reliably.

The only shining ray of success I've experienced in this space is OTR,
and but my personal experience is that even that is failing as more
people move away from using pidgin and adium to chat systems which OTR
does not as easily integrate with.
