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.

That's because Cpanel is a horribly badly written piece of software and a disgrace to system admins everywhere.

No it's a cost saving measure. They don't want to support every distro and they don't have to given the popularity of CENT.

Saying "CPANEL sux" won't make it go away anymore than saying "Office sux" when someone points out it doesn't run in Linux. Intertia will continue to build around CENT/RHEL/Oracle because of software like CPANEL. Sorry but that is reality.
