Bex writes "Ever wonder how your server uptime is when compared to others with different operating systems? Ever wanted some hard numbers for the Linux vs NT or FreeBSD debates? Check out uptime.hexon.cx for a list of servers and some interesting number on uptimes. It looks like FreeBSD stomps all over everybody else, with a whopping 1994 days of uptime for one server, and a 138 day average uptime. NetBSD is second for max uptime, but better on average. Windows 2000 is second to last, just barely beating out BeOS with a paltry record of 49 days. Its average uptime was under a week! Remember, downtime doesn't always mean a crash, but is is a good indication of how often a machine needs maintenance." Update: 12/30 10:33 by R : There's a new version of the uptime page here.
