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.

You actually *can* do this with windows, I have done it numerous times.

Guess what, I did this with BeOS even longer ago.

No one cares. This shouldn't be a feature point on a chart. It should be assumed that a system is designed well enough to cope with such a change.

I just recently did the swapping to get both crunchbang and windows 7 installed on an old laptop of mine that doesnt support USB booting ;) "hurray".
