You're kidding right?  While my experience on my G4 1GHz TiBook has been
fairly great (max out ram and cache) and I very rarely have to restart
because of a crash.

On the other hand - my wife's G3 Dual USB iBook (which I've got maxed out as
well)  hasn't stopped crashing since 10.3.  It crashes running Safari, Mail,
IE, kids games - you name it.

I don't know what the problem is.  It seems recent.  It crashes all the
time.  I've run every utility I have on it.  Don't know if it is related to
the logic board - we've only had one time (and only at startup) where the
screen has been doing the flickering thing.

To be honest - it has been crashing as bad as running a PC with Win 98 - 1st

Any thoughts?
