You may find that if you ever require a reboot, it's not the result of what's
described as a crash. Hardware issues aside, it's very improbable that Linux
will start to panic once it has booted/started. Reboots are for memory leaks
and iffy software glitches that can only be fixed in obscure ways (without a
reboot that is an 'easy fix'). Again, roboots are /NOT/ a crash. They are
expected, so the user is prepared. They are active rather than passive. It
makes all the difference in the world because loss of work never equates to
a couple of idle minutes (or a nice cuppa).
