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.

They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

As you say, ultimately there is a hardware connection or dependency somewhere. But if you could disguise it and decouple as much as possible it's a good thing.
