Interesting: True, I have had a crash on a PC since the
advent of Windows 2000 ... BUT it was traced to a faulty
disk drive whose bus locked up solid as "all on": in
other words, a true fatal hardware failure. Other than
that, no computer I have running 2000 .... about 10 ....
has ever crashed. Yes, I've had a couple of user interface
lockups, but persistance with ctrl-alt-delete and mouse
clicking eventually resulted in getting the task manager
to kill the offending program (always a program from
Adobe Software, I might add ... a company wedded to the Mac.)

Yesterday I had to reboot my desktop PC, because there
was a flaky cable between a CD drive and the sound card that
needed some Cramolin. Before I did so, I checked the uptime:
it was over 3100 hours. Do the division by 24.
