my windows PC, NONE of my windows PCs, have ever gone 19 days, 13 hours, and 13 minutes without a reboot. And still been snappy, or even useful..
Things ive done in the last 19 days and change include:
- dvd ripping with handbrake
- photoshop/imageready work
- textmate development
- parallels use for IE browser testing
- firefox open ALL the damn time (memory leaks, huh?)
i know ive got a pretty max’d out configuration, but really…i need to reboot my windows PC at work TWICE a day because windows rot is so bad it becomes unusable…and the only programs i use are firefox, IE, visual studio 2003, and imageready.
so, for the record, 6 month windows rot requires 2 reboots a day, 7 months of OSX and i can still go 2/3rds of a month without a reboot. my name is alex, and im a happy mac user.
