Common Causes Of Operating System Crashes

- 1 answer

I am interested to learn: what are the most common technical causes (from the perspective of operating system programming) of an operating system crash (not limited to Windows crashes)? I'm looking for an answer not like "too many apps open", but what specifically happens when too many apps are open that causes the crash.

Answer

In my opinion

  1. Bad drivers
  2. Kernel bugs
  3. Hardware failure
  4. End of resources

A modern operating system will not let a mere application crash it.
