I would be inclined to agree. I have a p100 running RH linux 2.0.27. It has
run the v2 and v4 bovine clients for weeks on end without even re-starting
the client (I use an other vtty to run -update).

Personally, I run my systems open-air-style. This means that with just a
glance I can tell if the fan is clean/functioning for one; sure a bit of
cat fur gets in there, but at least its not being sucked in through the
floppy and CD-rom drives!

Ultimately, what I'd like to do is just put a filtered 4" fan into the wall
of the case (blowing toward the CPU), or perhaps a Peltier(sp) cooler.
(much more important for my 200 than my 100, though). In fact, my 100 runs
nice and cool even on hot days when it's in its skivies. Its the 200mmx
with 4 drives, internal modem, and 3dfx card that really produces the heat!
that baby currently runs around 90+ fahrenheight.

gotta do something about that. but the client has never crashed on the hot
system, either.
