I have been using PPC Macs for years now and recently bought my first two Intel Macs, a mac pro and a Core 2 Duo iMac. With these Intel Macs, I have learned about kernel panics - can't really blame the Macs though since the KPs occurred while using beta software to emulate Windows. Even without installing that beta software however, I've noticed these new Macs lack the rock solid stability I've come to know and love with my Powerbook. New universal binary apps quit unexpectedly from time to time. Other times they simply freeze. These incidents are very uncommon, but they are disturbing the notion I hold of OS X being 100% stable. I'm sure these are simply growing pains which will pass as the UB apps are updated and polished. Did such growing pains occur with the switch to PPC? Anyone else been feeling the same way? If not, perhaps one of my apps is a trouble maker. Addendum - Before you attack me for this thread starting post, please read my short post below which clarifies what I am talking about.
