    I suspect you use the 'Windows Explorer', and probably Netscape for
browsing.  And I've had Explorer take down the Kernel when I hit Ctrl+A (to
select all files).  There are weeks when my machine doesn't crash, and there
are days with more than 10 crashes, and then there are the days when some of
VFAT's resources are unavailable (blue screen message during boot-up, system
halted) and I need to reinstall everything...

Not that GNU software doesn't crash, just that it rarely takes the Kernel
with it.
