It’s official, the butterfly can sting back. Somehow, Microsoft Windows Server 2003 has beaten the long standing standard of uptime maintained by linux. In a head-to-head comparison performed by the Yankee group, Windows Server 2003 experienced 20% more annual uptime than the latest incarnation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Now if this sort of microsoft made reliability could somehow be transferred to every other division of microsoft and their respective products, i.e. IE7, WinXP, Windows Defender, MSN messenger… and the list goes on.
