We run mostly HP servers here... And I have never had any problems with them
crahing cept hardware issues...
Of course our linux servers run circles around them, but our HP servers never
really die. But I think one thing to remeber is, we never really do any serious
OS upgrades on our HP servers, where as our linux servers are our web/ftp
servers, so we do much more frequent upgrades to them, so that may also be a
reason as to why they may have some problems...
A classic case in point is our DNS/DHCP servers... Two little linux machines
that really don't get touched much, and they have had zero problems... I tend to
think that the machines that get the most touching, break the most...
Just my thoughts...
