OTOH, this would be a great ad campaign for IBM.

"Microsoft announces 99.9999% accuracy the day before their servers are down for 12 hours.  We all know that 99.9999% uptime is impossible, so why do they do try to claim it?  We all know there's no computer out there that's 99.9999%, or 99.999%, or even 99.99% reliable.  So what are they competing with?  Magic?

IBM iSeries: 99.98% uptime.

Not quite magic."
