This is absolutely *not* the case in my experience. The only times I've been forced to reboot the computer have been when a program hung and would not release the mouse & keyboard (so that command-option-escape wasn't available), and times when I picked up my machine in such a way as to cause the hard drive to power-down (it's a PowerBook G3 "Pismo", and the hard drive is in the expansion bay, and if the case slightly flexes in the wrong way then the drive loses power).

MacOS X has been much, much more reliable for me than any previous OS I've ever used on a desktop machine.

 Furthermore, there is no other piece of software that causes me to
 have to reboot more often than KisMac.

I have not had KisMac create a problem like this for me -- ever.

Yes, I've had it lock up on me, but I was able to kill it with command-option-escape, and get on with the rest of my work.

What on earth have you been doing to your machine to make this happen?!?
