Take a look at: [code] 12:25pm up 138 days, 18:36, 7 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.00[/code] That's a Linux server running as a firewall for a 45M line, so it's not exactly sitting idle, either. I've also know NT boxes that have been scheduled to reboot once a day, otherwise they become unstable. All this doesn't mean that NT can't stay up for years, it just means that those are my experiences. And that's no reason to hate Microsoft. If anything it's a reason to pity Microsoft ... but I don't. I dislike Microsoft because of the way they work. They have a long history of playing dirty - using secret API calls, writing code specifically so it won't run on the competition's operating system, making customers pay for not using Windows, cross-subsidising unfairly, "enchancing" standards to make them incompatible, forcing any competition out using any means they can. They effectively have a monopoly on desktop operating systems now. They're abusing this monopoly. Imagine BT if it wasn't restricted by Oftel. It could kill off every other telco and possibly dial-up ISP almost over night. Luckily, it is regulated. Microsoft isn't. I'm not saying that Microsoft operating systems don't have a place. I have to admit to using Windows on the desktop. There's no way I'd use NT Server, though - apart from everything else, it's simply not the best choice. Foddy [/quote]
