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.

The only thing you said which wasn't total nonsense was "VS itself is good for a total newbie".

Yes, the other things I said are really total nonsense for those who use VS only and develop for Windows only.

I don't say that anything is good or bad. But trying to move someone to Windows development in the thread devoted to free and open source software, I think, is just one more nonsense here.
