So do some recent versions of FreeBSD. It depends on what the HZ setting
is. Besides, any server that is left running continually for that length
of time is a neglected, unmaintained server and nothing to boast about.
If you want something to brag about, look at the availability stats for
hosting companies. It's a much better indicator of overall reliability,
and companies running FreeBSD are generally very well represented in the
top 10 each month.
