Spanish term or phrase:estás casado
Talking about a supercomputing system, pls see below thanks (not sure if the married to a brand works here)
No obstante, Vázquez reconoce un potencial inconveniente en este modelo ya que“para bien y para mal, estás casado
con una marca”, pero considera que “la RES supone para la comunidad investigadora un nivel de colaboración que nunca antes ha existido y una facilidad de uso de los recursos impresionante”.
Explanation: For the figurative sense of 'married', I like 'wedded to'. Vázquez's meaning seems almost to be that of being 'stuck with it'; I think 'wedded to' works in both senses - that of loyalty and that of being trapped.
