And wants to see the thing run and run and run and run... I like
reliable OS'es and some of the NetBSD snapshots are the only ones
I have seen last long enough. SunOS 4.1.4 with one patch does quite
well for us too. 100 day up times for intensly used systems is a
great benefit.

Also, buying hardware to suit the OS rather than finding the OS to
suit your hardware make for more stable systems. I *know* what is
going to work with NetBSD.
