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.

(except e-books, of which I don't care whether they run proprietary thing or not - such device just needs to have great screen for reading and long-life battery, that's why mine is Kindle)


I almost agree with you. I bought a Sony PRS-505 because the PRS-700 lost some contrast to its touch screen and I didn't trust the original Kindle to be 100% happy with Linux and 100% willing to let ME control which eBooks got "revoked" off my SD card.
