The question I'm wondering about is this one.
At first my feeling was that it was a real life practical case where there should be mostly 2 options, Yes or No, and actionnable points to back up the positio. As such the question is on-topic I think.
It appears it attract mostly opinions without anything to back them up; no experienced cases with one or the other technology, most answers omit the question is about an app AND a bunch of services around on a PHYSICAL machine (may or may not be mandatory, but that's a clarification to ask, not an assumption to make, or both possibilities could be addressed, but dismissing the physical box existence to prove your point is not a valid option IMHO).
At time of writing, none of the 5 answers did address the second point (maybe Michael's one does to a certain extent, but that's highly unclear) and none did address the physical part of the problem.
The question author never reacted to any answer and didn't visit the site since the day after asking (May 17th).
I'm tempted to close this question as primarily opinion based as, despite being highly up-voted, it tends to attract nothing more than 'I think this is the way to go but can't give any reason or exemple applying to your case'.
What is the community feeling about this question ?
- It should be closed as time has proven nothing really helpful came from it.
- I (Tensibai) am plain wrong and a such should refrain to comment/janitor this specific question.
Both option are very valid and I'm fully open to ear I'm wrong.
