I've heard about this sort of behavior from time to time, but since I don't
see it on those systems that actually have the top on, e.g. the notebooks,
etc, I have to conclude that it's a result of my constant fiddling with the
system. My Winbook, in spite of occasonally considerable external
resources, has never had to be rebooted because it stepped on its (lesser
appendage), though it's had to be rebooted for updates, from time to time.
Unfortunately, I like the desktops better, because it doesn't strain my eyes
so much.
