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.

All of my dev work is via VM's these days. The VM is transportable, and I can use it on any OS I choose (so, my Work Win 7 laptop runs it most days, but my Mac Mini also gets a look in.)
