It's true, my WinXP machines are down to a crash a month and my Win2k
(work laptop) is about once every couple of weeks.

On the other hand, my OSX machine hasn't crashed once since December...
and it's running lots of funky server stuff (IMAP/POP/SMTP/Apache/Zope/
Samba) as well as being a desktop machine.

IE's fallen over a couple of times, but that's all.
