"The top 15 web sites on the Internet with longest average uptime since last reboot all run BSD. The January 2006 report is available from Netcraft at: HYPERLINK "http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/today/top.avg.html" http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/today/top.avg.html""
Listen, I like FreeBSD, I use it and Linux for servers. It is a very nice system. But, I am tired of hearing this Netcraft argument. Linux distros and FreeBSD keep track of uptime differently; I believe Linux tends to reset after around 500 days whether it has been rebooted or not. (I'm not sure what the limit is for FreeBSD.)
I use both, and find that FreeBSD and a decent Linux distro like Debian are about equally stable.
