I agree with you wholeheartedly, Viktor.

If there's one thing that bugs me about the Mac OS, it's the crashes. I
would gladly go without some feature additions if it could mean that I could
run Frame natively in an OS that didn't crash (eg. OS X). So for me,
Carbonisation is at the very top of my wish-list.

Perhaps Windows users could see what I mean if they were offered the
following choice: using an old, buggy, degraded, crash-prone copy of Win 95
to do their FrameMaker work; or using a tight, clean install of Win 2000.
The former promises as many as two, three or more crashes a day, while the
latter promises weeks of trouble-free running at a time. I'd go for the
latter any day, even if it did mean waiting longer for features.
