[erlang-questions] probability distribution of system uptime

Anyone know research into what system-uptime probability distributions
look like?

I can imagine that a machine that just started is more crash-prone,
since it is likely that
it was just restarted because of a crash, but how about long living systems?

It would be interesting to see a chart of reason-of-system-failure at
different time-scales.

Is it a good strategy to make the longest living node the master in
leader election?
