    I used Ubuntu Lucid 10.04 before my laptop died. I don't the exact numbers, but I never shut it down (except rebooting after updates) the whole 5 years I had it. In fact, my backlight burned out from being constantly lit for several years in a row.

    It never once shut down or crashed on it's own... unless, of course, I forgot to plug it in. Maybe the next kernel will fix that. ^_^

    Don't know exactly, but I had to leave town the 12th of Dec, came back early this morning, install updates and reboot .

    Computer is my daily, I hat it with the SSH server on waiting for when I needed to snag something off one of my many HDD's while away.

    Yeah, I gotta get that kernel module that keeps yer battery charged.

    16:02:25 up 27 days, 8:37, 1 user, load average: 0.35, 0.29, 0.50

    But, in my defense, I hack at stuff pretty bad. Last time I rebooted there were usb issues. I had completely confused devfsd by plugging and unplugging stuff with my USB hub too much. I was up to, like /dev/sdx1 or something and it wouldn't give up, so I did. I didn't want to find out what it did after z. But I think I exposed a shortcoming in my devfsd. Or usb module, or... maybe it was the expensive fresh gound coffee. I recall it being particularly good that morning.

    And sometimes I reboot just out of sympathy for the poor thing. It works so well, I let it lay at a vc1 login prompt for the night with a nice dmesg blanket to keep it warm.

    Peace and Cheer.
