Well that is just from an error-reporting prespective. I usually don't even report my errors, as I know many people don't even bother. Atleast he admits there is something that is wrong with his OS.

Fun read. 5% crash at least twice a day? I don't think my Mac has crashed twice in the last year!:D

Found this article on activewin.com and thought it was quite amusing.

"The New York Times has published an interesting write up of Microsoft's annual financial analyst meeting. We were considering a general-interest reference article to the Times' coverage until we noted one specifically interesting tidbit concerning Microsoft's own estimation of Windows' robustness. According to the article, Mr. Gates says that 5% of all Windows installations crash more than twice a day. From the NY Times: Mr. Gates acknowledged today that the company's error reporting service indicated that 5 percent of all Windows-based computers now crash more than twice each day."
