I have been pondering that could there be a program which benchmarks system stability.
Such a program would simulate all kind of user situations and test if system crashes... ;-)
I could imagine a system - a huge 100000 processor system which run all most used programs in Windows 2000 and tries to make it crash. After the system crashes it could create a very detailed logfile that what went wrong.
By using this huge system they could finaly find all the design flaws in Windows or in whatever system and finally mankind could have an OS which never crashed cos it has no errors in it.
That testprogram could run for years and year...and someday - maybe after 50 years of all research work we could have a dream OS...which never fails.
What do you think of this? Is this totally sci-fi dream?
