"Windows might not have any issues in an office environment with limited demands made on it but in a heavy Multi Media environment (Audio/Video/Games/3D) it is absolutely useless."

Funny you should mention heavy multimedia environments. I use my system for such things, and have had no problem with lockups of any kind. I've had my system render 3d scenes for days on end, and when its finsihed, i can still use it without having to restart. Same goes for many of my school buddies as well. I'd like to hear some personal cases where you have had problems on a windows machine on this issue.
