Got me. Maybe people think that running for several days at a time is 
adequate to consider it "running", but eventually the kernel eats all of 
the system's memory, and it crashes. I have a colocated Amiga running 
1.6.2 which has had uptimes of more than six months, so onviously I don't 
want to move to a few-days-at-a-time OS. This is especially true of a 
system that's used to build bulk packages.

Yeah. Even the 400 MHz PowerPC 604ev on a 50 MHz memory bus seems 
blisteringly fast when compared with the Quadras and the VAXen...

How's 2.0 doing on the R4400? Is it stable and usable yet?
