        It’s not a lie. The last crash was some hours ago. I tried executing a silversearcher ag search on a snapshot of my project and it froze at around 76% cpu (it probably got higher than that) Then it made the looping crash noise and I had to force reboot it. It probably wasn’t the ag search since it completes that in milliseconds, and more likely that I keep the uptime going for weeks at a time by suspending instead of shutting down

          I have also used Windows 10 since it was available, I have a lot of other issues with it (such as the system corrupting itself over time) but it has never crashed. Max that has happened is that the fonts got really bonked up which required a clean install to fix.

      Yea, but I wish I knew what was causing the crash. I’ve already upgraded the CPU and added fans to keep CPU cool. I hope it isn’t a GPU problem.

      Ubuntu 20.04, once every other day or so, everything freezes, keyboard not working, mouse not working, not virtual-terminals with ctrl-alt-f3, no nothing. Have to hard reset. Some hardware in my system is cooked. Or the kernel guys are playing a sick game with me.

      Linux Mint 5.4.0-81-generic
      Crashes? Basically never? I tend to run select updates and reboot intentionally every month or so, current uptime is 28 days so I’m probably due soon.

      Last actual "crash" like a kernel panic was a one-off issue on boot, that ended up being the fault of Nvidia drivers. Was over maybe two years ago? Switched to AMD GPU, much better drivers. Maybe the issue would have remained and recurred if It stuck with Nvidia? Who knows? Their Linux drivers are truly dogshit.

      macOS (Can’t remember last crash.)
      KDE_Neon (Didn’t crash, but had to force shutdown the machine there was some corrupted data or something that I had to repair with fsck. 2 days ago had to rescue it because tried running CS:GO off Steam (Linux) — it’s not the Linux’s fault though — we’re talking about a HP desktop more than a decade old with 8GB RAM being asked to run a ,,modern” game. The weird part was that once I ran the fsck repairs the freaking BIOS wasn’t even loading on restart — I was tripping out — force shutdowned the machine like twenty times until I started Googling. Found out that if you remove the battery on the motherboard that whatever faulty data persists will be flushed. Back to normal after that.)

        It’s not that the KDE_Neon crashed, but I was hanging in CS:GO so once I force shutdown the machine — restarting it put it into a basically ,,crashed” state. fsck and motherboard battery being popped out and put back in fixed everything no problem and all normal.

        I guess this doesn’t even count as a ,, c r a s h ” actually — scratch that —
        — in terms of a ,,true crash” I can’t remember the last time my macOS or Linux install crashed on my ass for real.
        And I keep these bitches running 25/8. (Update and restart them semi-regularly though but basically zero maintenance.

      once every 3-4 weeks. The sata ports on my mobo are all faulty, but the issue is so unpredictable the garden gnome company I brought it from refused the RMA request, and wouldn’t even pass it on the manufacturer for testing.
      Took them to the disputes tribunal (small claims court), easily won, made the company apointed wagie they sent seethe, and spent the money I won on home improvement instead.

      >Windows 10 (games only)
      Crashes maybe once a week. Can’t find anything wrong with the hardware. It’s just garbage.

      >Windows 7 (main computer)
      Crashed once in late 2017 when the GPU driver shat itself for some reason. Other than that, I don’t recall this computer (been using it for 7 years) ever BSoDding. The previous computer (which also ran Windows 7) BSoDded a few times, traced the problem to faulty RAM. Once replaced, the problem went away.

      Windows 7 has is the most stable OS I’ve ever used. It’s going to be a sad day when I have to move on from it.
