There is no replacement for quality software. Adding features to the OS in order to stop badly written programs bringing down the system will only encourage more badly written programs.


Sorry to disagree here Rigo, but that's just nonsense. If your OS stops you from doing bad stuff outside your memory range etc., the developer will see it immediately during debugging/development. If the OS does not have such feature, the developer won't always notice and the bug appears only for other users, making it hard to track down.
The OS should do everything and I mean everything to prevent taking down the system.
