Stability is certainly an area that M$ still fails in - although, in fairness, they have improved significantly in the past ten years (remember the old crashing jokes comparing Windows to cars
). Even though M$ doesn't "crash" all that often for me anymore - I notice that things just stop working. For instance, today at work the CD drive just stopped reading discs - it was stuck with one discs information on it and wouldn't read anymore. I had to reboot it and all was well (for the moment).
