It occurred to me this evening that I basically never shut my PowerBook down. It goes from home to work and back, changing from a WLAN to Ethernet to occasionally network-free, just sleeping during the journies. So, before I need to reboot for a software update, here's the current uptime:
> uptime
19:44 up 15 days, 43 secs, 3 users, load averages: 0.58 0.36 0.36
Sure, my FreeBSD workstation stays up for months on end, but I can't recall the last time my Windows XP box remained functional for two consecutive days, let alone fifteen.
