Getting the Uptime in Windows

Windows ships without the uptime reporting ability that is standard in Linux. I’ve gotten so used to checking the uptime on my Linux boxes (for various reasons) that I occasionally want to do the same on my windows machine. There are a few utilities that you can download but there is a way built into windows. With my tongue slightly in my cheek I suspect Microsoft didn’t make it easy because their OS never seldom has a reasonable uptime.
