I can't think of many machines that wouldn't start fighting back -- under
that sort of treatment -- with frequent crashes. There is a reset button,
and there are ways to force an unresponsive app to quit without ripping out
the power -- I mean, that's the computer equivalent of a downtrow on High

As you say, it's what you know how to use efficiently that makes the
difference most often.
