Recently, I rebooted two servers that had 20 days shy of 3 years
10:37:30 up 1075 days, 16:48, 1 user, load average: 0.33, 0.30, 0.33
While interesting in the "uptime game", it really struck me that
we have finally achieved the same level of reliability/stability
using Linux on PC hardware as we have had previously with Solaris
The real shock is these machines are running Fedora Core 2, which is
ancient/obsolete by today's standards.
