FreeBSD : longest uptime on NetCraft !


Official visitor
Look at this page :

NetCraft's list of computer with the longest uptime are almost all running a variant of BSD (save for a few IRIX machines). The top ones are even running the FreeBSD operating system ! (Not a single Windows computer in sight !)

Since Mac OS X is FreeBSD based, I think that bodes well for Mac OS X ! :D
Yes but... The page you refer to certainly doesn't invalidate this finding as all of the following OS could be reported... Even though most of them are not !
  • BSD/OS
  • FreeBSD [but not the default configuration in versions 3 and later]
  • HP-UX [recent versions]
  • IRIX
  • Linux 2.1 kernel and later, except on Alpha processor based systems
  • MacOSX
  • NetBSD/OpenBSD [recent versions]
  • Solaris 2.6 and later
  • Windows 2000
That list of top uptimes really is dominated by FreeBSD isn't it? To the point that it makes you wonder if there's something else going on. It's a be good?
