wow - I don't know if this was a troll, or a cry for help.
Silly me, I _stopped_ using non Linux operating systems
entirely after 1995, when I did a costs to rewards analysis on
what I was paying to stay with a proprietary vendor's
operating environment and tools.
I can crash Linux systems from time to time (I have not seen
Bigfoot in the wild yet; only the family cat, which also bears
that name), but the cause of such crashes are able to be
found, and the offending code reverted away.
