[maemo-users] [maemo-users] 9 days uptime

I empathize with your perception regarding re the need for frequent reboots.

 At the same time I have to say, however, that in the case of my 
Microsoft PPC based PDA I really take pleasure (I kid you not) from the 
fact that if something screws up in the software I can reboot and it 
only takes 5 seconds or so, thus taking me back to a time when computer 
reboots were really fast even though the processors were orders of 
magnitude slower! In other words, I get a sense of being back in control 
out of the act of the quick reboot.

Best Regards,
