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.

I also only use them when it makes sense or is required by some API.

I follow the same school of though as Anders, use static typing everywhere and dynamic only when required.

Specially in languages that have some kind of type inference.
