PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There's an article making the rounds right now about how applications on iOS crash more often than applications on Android. I'm not going to detail the entire methodology - the article itself does so - but it does raise an interesting talking point about how both mobile operating systems handle application crashes and updates.

They don't. You are talking out of your ass.


Actually they do. Do some simple research instead of pulling it out of your ass.

You're the one who made an outlandish claim, not me, therefore the burden of proof is on you. The very fact that you didn't post any evidence of your arbitrary assessment is why I qualified it as talking out of your ass.

So, I eagerly await you to post your own research. It shouldn't take long, since you claim such research is simple.

Since I'm in a good mood though, I'll warn you about a couple of pitfalls that may undermine your research credibility:
- anecdotes don't count (things such as "I use this thing written in C++ and it crashes all the time")
- any comparison of the rate of crashing between java and C++ application must be adjusted to take into account the much larger amount of C++ applications compared to java applications.

Let's see you research. I'm sure it will be enlightening.

I use KDE, which is written in C++. It crashes on me (not necessarily the whole DE) more in a month than all the Java apps together I've ever used. Claim proved. ;)

Anyway, I'm not sure Java SE and the Dalvik VM has so much in common that we can make any valid deductions from the former's performance.
