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 problem is that it is pretended as though it is a Linux/*nix only trait.

When in fact any OS can be setup to do it. My criticism is not with the OS it is with the article that pretends that a major selling point of an alternative OS is this ... when it tbh it isn't.

But I got down-voted even though what I said was 100% valid.
