What about the rest of you guys? Thank you in advance.


I probably have to reboot due to problems every month or 3.


98SElite: it's just there when I want it (which isn't often). Can't
remember when I last booted it.

XPSP3: I tend to shut it down when I go out, more to prevent fire than
anything else: it gets _very_ hot underneath (it's a netbook). When I've
been in for several days, I've not _usually_ had to restart it, though
don't think I've approached your three weeks or so. I _do_ find I have
to shut down and restart Firefox (26, plus a moderate number of
plugins), or it hogs the CPU (single core) such that other things are
noticeably slow: not that anything malfunctions, it just becomes
unusable.

7 Home 64: I have this set to sleep itself, so not really a fair
comparison. I recently had it try to recover a corrupted DVD (using
DVDroller and another similar), so made it never sleep, and that seemed
to be fine for many days (I didn't succeed with the DVD by the way);
after that I reverted it to the sleep after 30 minutes setting, but -
although the screen goes off - it doesn't seem to be sleeping, so I can
wake it up by just touching the pad, and it's been like that for several
days.

(Windows 95: We have some test sets at work. Tend to stay up and working
between power cuts - months at a time, usually.)

Wow, three/3 months! I wished mine go that high! I assume you used
your daily and a lot?


I use it a lot. Also, it is my DVR, with 3 cable tuners connected and more
digital OTA TV tuners, so it is left on to record any programs I ask it to. It
is connected to my TV for playback, and to my stereo for music playback.

I've had XP up for more than a year sometimes.

A usual uptime is several months.

At the moment

$ uptime.sh
uptime 115:00:59:24 9939564 seconds 115 days ago at 11:33:15
