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


Do not read this sign.
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?
