I think 350 is way bigger than 50 Chris, but then Linux doesn't have to have code for phone home or the Blue screen of death two "features" Linux is just not up for! ":O}

Linucs is crashing in different environments in different ways. Just because you see nothing or you get a stupid linucs message while everything is frozen doesn't make linucs better

Not often.

The biggest difference is, while an occasional app may crash in Linux, it doesn't take the whole OS down with it.

How often are we really able to recover Windows from app crashes? A high number of them require a restart to recover. I wish I could find the thread where we were trying to find out whose Linux machine had been up the longest. One of mine had been up for something like 10 months but I think dsio won...and the only reason his wasn't up a lot longer was that he'd had a power outage or sumtin'...

Fact 1: Vista doesnt require a restart to get over with a non responsive application/s.
Fact 2: Linucs can froze with no other option but reset the PC.

1. How about restart free updates?

2. If the computer hardware fails, absolutely. Computer operating systems are not like cars. They are not meant to have regular service intervals or "wear and tear". The notion that reboots were a part of having an operating system is marketing spin.

If the operating system freezes when there is nothing wrong with the computer, then it needs to be fixed (or the offending driver removed).

To be honest, software is like a tool. Arguing which is better on the basis of what they do is fairly pointless, unless it's a very specific area. For example, I can't perform wireless network assessments under Windows.

When you broaden out to the ethics of the people who write the software, you know that MS is still standing by Gate's original statement of intention - to be the only software company in the world. However, some of the open source developers aren't the nicest guys in the world either...

Tell you what, I'll let you know the next time I crash... I think the third time something happens is important...":O}

BTW Stupid messages is a windows strong point.... Say how's Vista these days? is it true that if you say Vista 7 times really fast it turns in to Win 7 and you owe Bill more money? ":O}
