I'm not using 64-bit, but I am on Linux (happens to be Debian).

As of today, our uptime is 700 days for the OS on one production
machine, our database has been up since March 2010, and our webapp has
only been running a couple of days because we just had a production
release. Before that, it had been running for nearly a year with zero

I know Microsoft Windows admins who schedule nightly reboots because
otherwise, their stuff doesn't work properly. Now, that was back in the
Windows 2003 days, so things have have improved since then.

I would highly recommend switching to *NIX to anyone considering doing
it. I find *NIX smaller, cleaner, simpler, more scriptable and remotely
administratable (is that a word? maybe administerable?) than Windows.

I hear that Microsoft SQL Server is a really great RDBMS. Too bad
they'll never port it to *NIX :)
