Not that hard with win2k, NT was a nightmare though.

Depends on whether you're talking per server or from the users point of 
view.  With sufficient backups, clustering, failover etc. windows can get to 
five nines, but that kind of reliability takes cash.  If you're talking per 
server, when was the last time you did a kernel update on a linux box 
without rebooting?
