I have to agree here as well. Too many times do I see people just 
blasting other operating systems for these reasons. I'd even go as far 
as argue that Windows XP is stable too, so long as it's managed, 
administered, and setup securely and correctly.

I don't notice any more crashes on the Ubuntu systems I have set up, 
compared to those of CentOS/RHEL, or to even Windows XP and 7 systems. 
And I administer all of the above in the same network. People mix these 
perceptions up all to frequently, or personally because I simply believe 
they like to bash other operating systems that they don't like or want 
to use.

Just my 0.02 cents.
