If it does not fall over for other reasons anyway...

My Linux box had been running for seven months before I
installed Sybase on it and has been running for three months

NT is so unreliable that I don't keep it running at all, but
power it up just for testing purposes.

But then as a freelance consultant I can do that... yippeeee

More seriously I would not recommend an NT server
for any mission critical job whatsoever.
