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.

It's interesting how many people, especially in the corporate space, that thinks the exact opposite: if it's expensive it must be good.

Very true. I remember one of my managers requiring to use Oracle DBMS just because client company have heard of "how reliable it is". And we only had like 7 tables...
