Hmm. I've had both X crashes - which, if you're dealing with a
single desktop box means equivalent to a system crash, since there's no
other box handy to ssh in and restart X.
I've had kernel panics as a result of failing hardware.
I've had kernel panics as a result of doing dodgy things when building
X on this box has developed a nasty tendency to freeze, but I can't really
blame it - it's not actually specific to X; the drives freeze. Usual
