I've been using OSX since the last days of 10.3 across seven Macs, and
they've been kernel-panicless during that time *except* when using
beta versions of Parallels and VMware which hook into the kernel, or
when some hardware has gone south. So no, it hasn't changed in
stability over that time.
I had a problem where boot wouldn't complete on a service pack once,
10.5.4 I think, which was down to a corrupt font cache. Fixable via
ssh from another machine, just deleting the whole system caches
Here's something to make the Windows fans think: 10.6 feels and
benchmarks faster on the same hardware than 10.5 which is faster than
