Apple vs. The Evil Empire
Conservative writer David Frum says,
I love Apple computers, but they dont seem to love me in return. Ive just had my fourth major computer crash in 18 months this one on a second iBook that replaced the lemon that suffered the first three crashes. Sorry for the offline absence. Ive now secured a loaner and will be filing from it over the next few days.
I'm deliberately not linking to the article, because the rest of it has nothing to do with Apple.
My point is that while I've had freeze-ups plenty of times, I have not had a "major" computer crash (something that set me back more than a few minutes) on any Windows platform after Win95.
If you use a computer for word processing, email, web, and other routine stuff (as opposed to using it to test bleeding-edge software or applications), you really should not have to suffer through a "major" computer crash. Should you?
