High Linux uptime

My no-name white box (P200, 64M, Red Hat 7.1) had 231 day uptime when
I had to shut it down to add more memory and get ready to replace it
with a home built AMD 1.8G running debian 'woody'. The previous white
box system was a P486/33 with 24M running Red Hat 6.2. A 6x speed bump
then 9x. In a few years will the next one be a 21.6G monster?
