Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

Hi Howard, great article. I recently installed Debian on my laptop to dual boot and might even put it on my desktop now I am becoming more familiar with it. Which distro do you like to use for home/work?

I am very interested in seeing another article like this covering your trouble shooting procedures. I imagine there are one or two that are particular to linux/bsd. Cant wait to learn something new.

Oh the other thing on my mind is finding a robust backup strategy that can be applied to Linux. You obviously have it sorted, would love to read more.
