Y2K problems stem from a two digit date, done to "save" memory.
Linux and Unix maintain the date in a 32 bit number. It will
roll over in 2038, by which time, I hope, I'm running a 64 bit
machine and Linux or its free successor. (That is, if I live
that long. I'll be 98 then.)

Debian GNU/Linux Because with Linux there is no Y2K problem.
Because the support is fast, correct, useful, and free.
Because reboots are for hardware and kernel upgrades.
