wow. that is significant in that their either
1) only gather windows statistics (with a token irix and linux server)
2) they only gather data from a datacenter that is predominantly windows
3) Linux/unix sysadmins are generally smart enough to patch their
systems; windows admins are not.
And I still do not believe the actual data as a system uptime. I have
worked sites that have both windows and unix running the same type of
system, and the lowly 5 year old unix box did ten times the traffic of
the windows *cluster*, and had twice the uptime as the *cluster*.
My guess is that the windows servers listed at the above url are
actually clusters, that allow upgrades, reboots and testing of one at a
time offline. Not true uptime at all.
