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.

"Another possibility is to keep Windows but replace Microsoft's proprietary development environment."
Actually, Development is one of the reason why to move TO windows. Visual Studio is simply one of the best dev environments around (obviously "in my opinion") and .NET is extremely powerful too.
