Though I know we're going way OT - I was told that the most
interesting thing coming out of brainshare (apart from Win2008
running in Xen) was that there are still many large companies running
NetWare 3.12 servers, many with 1000+ days of uptime.

Oh please, 1000 days uptime? that's child's play for linux -

root@ashpool:~> uptime
1:15pm up 1084 days 0:45, 1 user, load average: 3.59, 3.33, 3.29
root@ashpool:~> uname -a

Remember NW3,x with affection... needed *NO* TLC ,.. probably the most
secure server OS around for providing file storage and print services
(when properly configured of course)... the only time the things went
down was when the hardware died or the the admin (or cleaners :-))
pulled the plug on the server...

Linux does many more and much more complex things than NW3.x but NW3.x
strength was (and is) its solid reliability and overall performance in
the few things it did do. A direct comparison of NW3.x to Linux is
probably not really valid...
