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.

After all, Java now is too under just another dying monopoly, and it is safer to use something like Python, especially for web.

VS express is not open, so it cannot be compared to others. And yes, IDEA core is open source under Apache license.

Mono is cross-platform, yes, but it's not the truly same platform.
