FWIW, my Win2k8 server has been rock solid since installation, with only 
*extremely* infrequent reboots for patches as few of the issues patched 
are network-exploitable.

These days Windows is a rather solid platform. It still weirds me out, 
but that's how it is. I've had more stability issues on my Linux servers 
lately (though that's significantly to do with some of the cheap and 
nasty hardware they're on).
