Absolutely. We've run a data acquisition and control system using
a Debian 1.2 machine. Since the project started about 15 months
ago, typical uptimes have been 50-60 days with reboots due to
hardware adjustments or our own mistakes in daq, along with the
occasional longterm power failure. Never had the Debian end of
the software crash.
