My NT server never goes down BUT it is not being used as an application 
server.  It is strictly a file server (I don't trust it for anything else) 
and it is re-booted (as is the AS/400) every week.

According to an IBM handout attributed to a Gartner Group report in Nov. 
1998,
the unplanned outages reported in number of hours per server per year were:

AS/400    5.2 hours
S/390 (non-Sysplex clustered)    8.9 hours
Unix        23.6 hours
Win NT    224.5 hours
