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
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?!?
