OpenBSD on Dell GX110 Hits 1 Year Uptime

 Out of all the operating systems I've ever tried, I have to give a special nod of appreciation to OpenBSD 4.7. An hour ago it hit one full year of uptime. The hardware it's running on is nothing special, just an old Dell GX110 with a P3 cpu and 256 megs of ram. No mysterious slowdowns occurred and the system is still responsive. This marks the first time I've ever run a computer non-stop for over 1 year.

Here is a list of the longest uptimes I've personally had with various combinations of operating systems and hardware:
