Not wanting to get into a war over Linux - but you must be kidding. Linux now 
is being used in embedded cable decoders and all kinds of consumer 
applications, not to mention web servers and mail servers which can run 
literally for years without intervension.

Linux has just been deployed by the TSB Bank in New Zealand, it will be 
operating all their desktops. The sterotype of Linux of being a techie/geek 
solution is no longer true.

I'm writing this email on a HP machine running Red Hat, and my web server has 
been running Linux for over two years - with exactly zero crashes due to OS 
failure (two hardware failures). I hardly ever need to touch it.
