OSNews, Generic OSes Yankee Group's second annual Server Operating System Reliability survey polled 700 users from 27 countries worldwide. The latest independent, non-sponsored Web-based survey revealed that all versions of UNIX -- which typically carry very high workloads -- are near bulletproof, achieving 99.999% reliability. IBM's AIX UNIX led all server operating systems for reliability with just over 30 minutes of per server annual downtime but Hewlett-Packard and Sun Microsystems also got high scores.

What an achievement

Indeed, what an achievement for IBM. AIX, 0.60 hours of downtime per year, is almost as good as Mandriva (and Turbolinux), 0.38 hours of downtime per year ;)
