Why is P2Pool better than a reliable PPS pool?

Curious what your opinion is.

I buy and sell GPUs, most 5850s and 7970s.

I have a couple bare bone mining rigs for sale as well.

Mine with p2pool to prevent one pool from amassing too much power. Did I mention it's free and hop-proof?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Because p2pool is as reliable as your internet connection, and the machine(s) it runs on. A traditional pool is just another potential failure point, and I don't know of ANY pure PPS pools that have no fee.

Ah, I hadn't realized they were no-fee. Cool.

No reason you can't use both.

I have 2 instances of p2pool running on 2 different machines with a PPS pool as a backup

cgminer makes it easy to maintain 100% uptime even when making upgrades.

Code:
{
"pools" : [
{
"url" : "192.168.0.129:9332",      <- dedicated p2pool machine
"user" : "WaterOne/1000+1",
"pass" : "pass"
},
{
"url" : "192.168.0.181:9332",      <- my workstation which is always on
"user" : "WaterOne/1000+1",
"pass" : "pass"
},
{
"url" : "backup-pool:port", 
"user" : "backup-user",
"pass" : "backup-pass"
}
],
