We're talking alpha, pre-beta software, 1 hour between crashes would be a MINIMUM standard at this point. M11 already exceeded, although only slightly, this minimum and it's not alpha yet. You can't expect a program labeled alpha to be as stable as the final product. I remember some old Netscape betas and they were pretty bad sometimes, so we shouldn't be pulling our hair too much right now over this. If the standard for beta isn't significantly higher, then we should start our complaning and gripping.

BTW, in some cases the Microsoft standard is closer to 45 minutes :)
