For what it's worth, I'll add:
MacOS 7.6 5.5, but with a hundredfold penalty for buggy software

>Win95 4 (reboot daily)

People running Mac web servers have to reboot every few weeks at the worst.
People running MS Word reboot daily at best. People doing application
development (like me) reboot every few minutes. :(
