After several such cases one gets a prejudice during any further communication with a girl about software that the technical subject is only a cover and that she in fact has a different goal.

With closed source parts of your system you can never be sure where the rare crash came from. You cannot recompile the driver with safety barriers (_FORTIFY_SOURCE, mudflap, valgrind...), hardware watchpoints trap in binary code you cannot easily verify...

This results in unstable software commonly found on closed source platforms as nobody can provide reliable software there.
