This is obviously not a performance issue, but a stability issue. The performance of my laptop is just fine. However, I was expecting less crashes... And these crashes seems to be caused by a driver issue. If the issue was isolated to a single subsystem e.g sound driver, then the system would be able to restart the sound driver in a microkernel design; not so in the design of linux where the misbehaving driver will most likely crash the system.

When did minix 3 start out? How long did it take for linux to become relevant?
