It's nice to hear that you weren't ranting ;).   I said in my post that 
Stata for Windows has crashed fewer than 5 times in 10 years of very heavy 
use -- to me that is very stable for any software on any platform.  I have 
never lost any Stata work due to a crash of Stata or Windows.  Are you 
saying that you have never had any Linux application crash ever?  How about 
Mac users out there? 

I've been a user since Stata 4. And I once actually crashed Stata on a Mac
in a repeatable way. That was before OS X, though. And the folks at Stata
had figured out the crash within a couple of days. 

But since OS X life is quiet. No viruses, no worms, no crashes. I guess it's
not the platform for those who like working against overwhelming odds.
