Macs generally don't crash, unlike Windows or even sometimes Linux.
Though stability in Linux, which was great even way back when,
allowing for uptimes that were unheard of on a windows platform, is
even better today. Still has a ways to go, but Ubuntu has made great
strides in making a stable, user oriented environment.

User friendliness means ease of use and ease of use of the things that
one would generally plug into a computer. Not having the ability to
use a given popular peripheral subtracts from user-friendliness of any
Sound cards are just devices, but there was a time when you had to
jump over backwards and lick your own elbows to get most sound cards
working in Linux.

It's a popular device for graphics design and art. I own one myself
and on Windows, it's just plug and play. I plug it in and get to
work. The same should be true for any Linux system. We've already
conquered the base system. Now we need to get the peripherals working
as close to flawlessly as we can.
