How long without patching the base system?
Date: Thu, 10 Nov 2005 03:23:13 +0100
I take some time to keep my systems fully patched, for my ports I'm happy
But for the base system, I'm not aware of such a tool. Is there any?
How often a base system must be rebuilt?
I felt from my chair to see that FreeBSD has 9 of the 10 most longuest
uptimes on Netcraft (http://uptime.netcraft.com/up/today/top.avg.html) and
almost half of the top 50. Does that means those (base)systems were never
updated in 1700 days for some of them?
Netcraft data can be innacurate and/or reflect the uptime of an appliance
but the amount of FreeBSD/BSD OS machines is just amazing...
