Longest time for an X system (this desktop at work) was almost 200 days
(I forget exactly how many. I think 180something). I forget why I
rebooted... either kernel upgrade or X crash, the latter of which hasn't
happened yet with X4.x.
My machine at home reboots every month or so when the power goes
out... haven't bought a UPS for home yet :-(
