Well, the real question is:
First thing is, we can laugh at Linux developers, who couldn't code proper
uptme counter until 2.6.0.
Second thing is, I wonder, how the uptimes will look in 1 - 2 years, just
because Linux 2.6.x is getting to be widely used.
Third, I don't really know, if that fault in Linux uptime counting really
hits Netcraft. Perhaps they use some other method.
Anyway, uptimes need a closer examination, before we can surely state some
statements about it. Comments?
