I have two XP machines that can run for a month or so without a reboot.
Eventually though, things start to get screwed up (Without installing any
additional software). I believe that Microsoft's memory management does not
properly clean up after itself. My Linux installs, once fully installed do
not need a reboot. It drives me nuts when I have to reboot Windows just to
have an application complete it's install and be useable. This can sometimes
(though not always) be circumvented by registering the DLLs via the regsrv32
command, but that can be a PITA.
