Insane! I bet you can’t beat that.

To be fair, that isn’t a traditional Windows computer. It is a NetWare 3.12 file server that was put up on September¬†23, 1996 and never shut down or restarted since then, until it was recently taken down due to bad hard drives. I can’t imagine someone doing the same with a Windows (or Mac OS X) computer. At least not one that is regularly used. I’m not sure about Linux. Maybe.
