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.

If you do just that, the only "problem" when you do this, in Windows the old NIC and IP-configuration remains in the registry. Occasionally I've seen it cause problems.

In Linux it's just udev that needs to be told that the new nic should be used in place of the old one.
