All I know is that my iBook has only crashed a few times in the last year and my wife's eMac has not crashed in the few months that she's had it. My PC used to crash 3 or 4 times a day. My wife's PC wouldn't do much of anything. Sure, maybe many of the crashes were related to third party drivers, but where the hell else am I supposed to get drivers for third party products?Yes it does! And it does it alot. The difference between a pc based on Windows crashing and a Mac is that on the pc the crash is in 99% of the cases caused by badly coded third party software, when the Mac just has a faulty operating system.
