And you know, there's always one person who says that free software is better and that Windows crashes every hour for them. Oh hell, there are tons of those. If your XP and 2000 machines can't go past 3 days, that's sad. No really, I wonder what you do that makes them go under so fast. That takes talent. My Windows Server 2003 machine has a current uptime of over 24 days and 15 hours. Now, that's not as impressive yet as my FreeBSD server that has 87 days of uptime. But the point is, that Windows does not crash every day like the 9x days. And XP is NOT as buggy as Windows 3.1. I doubt you ever used 3.1 then if you can say THAT with a straight face.
