Mac OS X Ten years ago, to the day. March 24, 2001, the first official released version of Mac OS X went on sale, for USD 129. It was a massive step up and a massive step down from MacOS 9 at the same time - technically way more advanced, but clearly still in its infancy and pretty much unusable. Kernel panics, crashes, incredibly slow, and lacking many key features. It was so bad, in fact, that Mac OS X 10.1 was released as a free upgrade. Of course, we geeks know that Mac OS X is technically a lot older, but alas, let's just celebrate these 10 years. Maybe Lion will finally bring a usable non-crashing Finder!

I too use it for years and it crashes less than i.e. skype - almost never. I don't know what you do to crash it but if it's frequent - check for plugins or some wild soft with messes up

Off topic question; does Skype have a way to disable starting and logging in at bootup? Normally this is a checkbox in the Skype options but for some reason I can't seem to find that setting in the Osx version. I'm sure it's a ID10-T issue but I can't spot what I'm missing here.

System Preferences > Accounts > Login Items maybe?
