    Win 7 is definitely the most stable GUI OS made by MS, but I've found it crashed on me several times before, and I don't use it for anything except gaming and virtualization (and no, it hasn't crashed during a game or virtualizing). Linux only crashes on me when a program I develop goes wrong, overclocking too much, or faulty drivers.
    I find it hard to believe that you are running your windows without overclock and only overclock for Linux. Overclock right there is a reason enough why your windows would crash. Software quality does not help a thing when your hardware has been pushed past it's designed limits.

      First of all, you're quoting a 6-year-old post.
      Second, I never said or implied I OC in Linux and not Windows. I was just stating that overclocking is one of the only primary causes for instability in Linux, as it is with any OS. Linux isn't magically stable no matter what you do, so I wanted to clarify that I have in fact encountered stability issues with it, because of things scuh as OCing.
      Third, I never said or implied software quality correlates to hardware pushed past its limits.

        Just for the sake of argument.
        You are pretty much implying there that Windows would crash with or without overclock, with or without doing anything, be the drivers faulty or not... etc.

        And yeah, 6 years old. Last post was from 2 years a go. Somehow that thread popped up as "recent". I don't dig around. Sorry. I won't respond here any more.
