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.

So I should be able to swap in any pci compliant web server without any problems? Are you really going to tell me that with a straight face?

When did I ever say that? Making up stuff to argue your point is, well, pointless.

...dependency hell in Linuxland.

No argument there, it's something I deal with no matter which distro I'm using at the time.

I can see you are too sensitive to be able to discuss this issue with intellectual honesty. I'm used to that with Linux fans, no big deal.

What the hell are you going on about? Look, I know you think no one knows you're just nt_jerkface with a new account; after all that old account stopped posting around the time you started with this one, and the name is a clear giveaway. So from our past discussions under your old handle, you should remember that I'm fairly platform agnostic, unlike you. In fact, my favorite OS (as you well know, old friend) is BeOS and by extension Haiku, followed by OS X.

But anyway, I'm just telling you what you already know. Shame on you for trying to troll under a new moniker though; it's very bad form my friend.
