Truthful or not, the website's availability && usability has reflects on the 
image that a customers have about the quality of a given product.
Specially if you're a start-up that has to outsmart concurrents like Sun, HP, 
IBM, Dell to make a profit, and your client's CEO knows $#!+ about MIPS 
processors. :)

Perhaps, but it is true that well made sites (especially when you sell 
something through it) DO leads to an increase of sales. 

It's a matter of balance between shape (website) && content (real product).
And "This is Bad Thing"® when an uptime of 4 days only exists in the wildest 
dreams of your site's host.
However, this doesn't means that you should host your site on an OpenBSD 
server! :)

As such, it means that a company willing to make a successful product MUST pay 
attention to the smallest of the details on both sides, specially when the 
said product uses/runs Debian! :D


Genius, I'm not able to reset a IDE virus from LinuxPPC NT, how does it work?

You should never remove the CPU, in such way you either should link the 
printer of the window, or cannot debug the SIMM in order to rename a LCD 
front-end on a port over a monitor over a prompt to the MIDI tool.
