Hehehehe, that's pretty funny...a year or two without rebooting.
Where have you had that happen? The only system that runs a year or two
without *some* kind of reboot is a system that isn't used. Don't want to
start a war or anything as I use Linux daily. Just don't like to see
unsubstantiated claims like that (hell, I have to deal with AS/400 bigots
all day long with their 99.9% uptime claims).
