up 41 days

As I’m about to reboot my computer to install OS X 10.6.6 and the Mac App Store, I couldn’t help but noticing my uptime.

41 days.

This is impressive to me. Consider this: I came from Windows. My Windows XP box had to be rebooted every week or so otherwise the screen wouldn’t render properly. The short-lived Windows 7 partition on my Mac had to be rebooted every two days, otherwise weird UI bugs would happen (like the taskbar’s icon glow not going away). 

But OS X? 41 days before rebooting for non-stability issues. Pure awesome.
