“Military-Grade” Hardware

While rereading Jason Perlow’s series commemorating the Apollo space
program, I came across this sales brochure for the Univac 1230 “Military
Computer”
<http://content.zdnet.com/2346-17924_22-319868-11.html?tag=content;col1>.
Note it boasts an MTBF of “1500 hours” (measured from a sample of units
actually running).

That’s about two months. I think today’s consumer-grade PC hardware can
manage that without too much trouble—if it’s running the right operating
system...
