I've heard that said when Linux crashed on a machine when Windows worked
fine. Turned out to be a chipset-specific linux bug ;)
I remember in the twilight days of Solaris 2.5.1 that if the machine
hung, they replaced the hardware, no questions asked. Linux is nice, as is
Rieserfs - but I'd be more likely to believe that it's a rieserfs bug if
it's happened on multiple hardware platforms...
