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.

All of them are free and feature-rich.
And also all of them (and software created using them) work on:
Windows
OS X
Linux
Solaris/*illumos
*BSD
[more to come, haiku is already in progress, afaik]
And for .net there's Windows-only, as Mono is castrated to Web mostly

Free and feature-rich; very multi-platform, across Windows, Xbox, Windows Phone, iOS, OSX, Android, desktop Linux; with many existing examples in appstores.
