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.

You probobly mean scalabity, in which GNU/Linux is probobly the best in the whole market [as the whole UNIX ecosystem]. From small ARM/MIPS, etc devices, to big servers running big CPUs, or ARM/MIPS. There is actually no other OS that would give you such outstanding scalability OOTB.
The thing you are talking about is rather a commercial support, in which case I can agree, but it's getting better and better over time in FLOSS world.
