I've also upgraded the Debian server approximately 15 times since May. Windows XP Pro has required approximately 35 updates, mostly security updates to various applications. Debbie installed the updates (including a couple of kernel updates) and the added applications and kept running. The XP Pro system required nearly 30 reboots with the 35 updates. I also got at least one update I didn't know about and one I would have liked to have heard about before it installed itself. So, hmm, who wins this criteria category?

BTW I do know that Debian Linux does reboot. I've deliberately rebooted a few times just to see if it does. It has only been shutdown deliberately, not by accident or by software failure.
