    I've never heard anyone say that before. Though I must say, it seems to be more stable for me than Windows has ever been.

    I've heard like a hundred people say that. Oh, and it was so hilarious. I was at the genius bar 2 weeks ago with a problem (you guys may remember it, the cmos issue) and it crashed right then and there, and the lady beside me saw it. Shes like, "I thought you said macs don't crash" with the :hsugh: face and hes trys covering his ass with a technical explanation of what he meant and shes just like "OK :hsugh:"

    rarely crash...it even says on the site

    i've crashed one before, usually it happens with junky software...it's a unix based machine, the software is built by the same people that build the hardware. this explains why windows has so many stabilty issues, they have to make software that is compatible with numerous types of hardware. (personally, i don't have windows stability issues, i re-image my system to my drive every month or so and i haven't had problems. it's only when you install crap and let it brew for years when you have problems)

    also, most of the time when an apple crashes, the system will be fine, it might just close the program. if it really crashes bad, it usually just needs a simple restart

    that looks like the error message you get from turning the comp off without going through the menus to do so

    Been using a Mac for 2 years now, and OS X has never crashed on me once (ie. kernal panic). Apps however crash quite a bit. I've had Finder crash more times than i'd like, although I haven't had that problem in Tiger so far.

    Of course, in the 4 years that i've been using Win XP, i've never had that OS crash on me either.

    I was watching a fucking csi episode with azures seeding two files in the bg and firefox open. then all of a sudden the screen turns black but I could still hear the hdd and the fan, so I had to hold down the power button to restart it.

    our XP machines at work crash quite often.

    Azureus is a fucking shitty program. It caused my only Kernel panics ever, and after those I've been using (the original) BitTorrent.

    A kernal panic is what happens when the kernal experiences an error it cannot recover from. We've probably all gotten the error message "Application has quit due to an unrecoverable error" at one point or another - a kernal panic is what happens when the kernal suffers the same fate. Theoretically the kernal is well enough shielded via APIs and other stable interfaces that kernal panics shouldn't occur often at all.
