You're comparing apples (program in language A which does handle errors
correctly) with oranges (program in language B which does _not_).
That's not the subject, as far as I am concerned. For me, the premise is a
program (in whatever language you'd like) whose programmer didn't handle
system errors correctly (because if they do there's basically no problem,
right?) which runs into a system error.
Said error necessarily causes either a sudden program death or bad
(miscalculated, incomplete, ...) output. I do know which of these two
results _I_ prefer.
