Linux still topping downtime league in 2007

These are the downtimes so far in 2007 for the websites of some of the more famous OS developers, namely Microsoft, Apple, Sun, FreeBSD, Red Hat and Ubuntu.

Website Downtime
www.ubuntu.com		3h 32 min
www.redhat.com		2h 40 min
www.freebsd.org		1h 56 min
www.sun.com		1h 28 min
www.apple.com		   38 min
www.microsoft.com	   10 min

If you compare this with the same list from January, you’ll see that the Redhat and Ubuntu websites were “on top” back then as well. Though considering we’re talking about downtime here, perhaps “at the bottom” would be a better choice of words.

Ubuntu would have actually placed better if it wasn’t for the 1+ hour of downtime they had this morning.

To be fair, these websites all have a very respectable uptime, and much, if not all, of the downtime may well be due to planned maintenance.

(We did this check earlier this year in January, and figured it was time for an update.)
