That will work, as long the gnupg keyring format doesn't change. (And at some point, it may.) If/when that happens and you want to copy keys, you can always export the keys on one computer, then import on the other. For example: old $ gpg --armor --export > public.asc old $ gpg --armor --export-secret-keys > secret.asc old $ gpg --export-ownertrust > trustdb [...transfer key files to new computer...] new $ gpg --import public.asc private.asc new $ gpg --import-ownertrust trustdb -- Todd OpenPGP -> KeyID: 0xBEAF0CE3 | URL: www.pobox.com/~tmz/pgp ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Intaxication (n.)
