I have a gig of RAM and OS 9.1 and the system is very stable even with tons of programs up and running. I think RAM shortages are the #1 cause of instability with moderm OS's.) As a programmer, I can say that you are wrong.You are probably just masking/delaying the instability by having more ram. There is noreason that adding ram should prevent a Crash, exceptfor poor programming. (either in the app, orat the OS level)There are two primary ways an application consumesram. The stack and the heap. A stack overflow shouldbe easily detected by the OS and should be indicatedas such, and a request for heap space can fail, andthe application should be able to deal with thatinstead of assuming that it will always work.That being said, for practical resons, you maywant to have more ram to delay the programs you need to use from causing "instability"Look to OS X to improve things on the OS side.0xF00L
