kinds -- OS versus SW.
If I have a chance to get a SW running on UNIX-like platforms what is
possible with some of these proprietary SW-package, I would always use
them on a UNIX-platform as this runs much more stable, can handle large
size of data without going near to look like dead.
And if there will be a crash, then only one application is dead not
Finally, it looks much more like you have an issue with your computer
and its hardware- and software-environment than with specialized
