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.

Coming from an open source advocate I missed the bashing against Apple, Cisco, Oracle, Sybase, Intel, SAP and any many others I don't bother to list.

Commercial software is evil run away! Everything is going to be taken care by university students on their free time.

Open Source is evil and/because there's no money in it. Everything will be taken care of by commercial interests that really, we promise, care about whats best for YOU

What is this "Open Source" you speak of? Sounds mighty close to communism.
