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.

Accuracy - not over sold with false promises. Do not fail after a year.

How about reliability, both in the sense of reliable vendors and reliable hardware ?
