This is probably the reason why you do not see the crashes. When you reboot often enough the kernel does not rot fast enough. Although I get sudden reboots completely randomly, even after one day, but the sudden reboots may be caused by some hardware/BIOS issue (BIOS updates do not help, Lenovo X220). And after all you may not be messing up with many USB hubs/extenders, rotten flashdisks etc. That one computer does not crash does not prove the kernel is rock solid on every computer. The monolithic (non)design of Linux kernel can never be really stable.

While Linux kernel is solid on servers for whatever reason on desktop it always was crashing and/or required occasional reboots. Flashdisks plugging/unplugging creates allocated un-unmountable devices. Desktop machines just randomly reboot. Screen occasionally goes black or garbage forever (it may be X bug). Keyboard becomes unresponsible. OOM problems where the system locks up or some fundamental process gets killed. etc.

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. So I do not want to lose my time talking about software with girls anymore. It's theirs fault. Women push people into being sexist.
