    How many crashes have you had in linux?

    How many crashes have you had in linux? Inquiring minds want to know.

    I have had one crash, but it wasn't linux's fault. My brother somehow managed to start 70-some Firefox instances, and it hung because it ran out of memory.

    crashes, none..
    freeze ups where i could only do a cold restart, way too many to mention.

    Re: How many crashes have you had in linux?

    In the last three years I've had a few instances of Firefox freezing up, but that's it. No crashes have happened with any of my Linux systems (not all are running Ubuntu, but most are). The stability has been astounding, quite impressive, especially since I've done a lot of truly stupid things while learning my way around with them. (Note: Lucid has given me some problems, but not as far as system stability).

    Moving my small business computers to Linux was a great decision. It wasn't always easy, and it did take a few years to plan and prepare beforehand, but it's been worth it. So, to answer your question, no, no crashes here. (whew!)
    The scientific theory I like best is that the rings of Saturn are composed entirely of lost airline luggage.

    Over 20 but I've been using linux for years including unstable distros etc... so its hardly surprising.

    In that case, with 8.10 I had freezes daily sometimes more than one in an hour, it became slightly less with 9,04, then i figured out that if i stopped using rhythmbox, gnome do and or avant window navigator the freezes would become less or stop altogether.
    So in karmic hardly had any trouble and almost none in lucid, but i did have to sacrifice some cool software though.

    Zero in 9.10 and zero in 10.04 so far.
