I'm syphatetic with your answer. The MacOS (now 9.04) is not running in
protected mode like WinNT but what's all that protected mode good if
programs crash reliably at the same condition? We MacOS users which have
to use WinNT e.g. at work have to adapt to all that "attention, don't do
...." and "where to the hell is the control panel to disable ..."

Coming back to fridges and toasters: Also there are MS-products and
others, made for the rest of us.
