In my experience, not exactly. I had a hard drive failure and one kernal panic on my old Powerbook G4. How about you?

Actually for me it never crashes. The only time my computer crashes is when I'm using a high end program like GameSalad, and when I do something wrong it crashes. So I figure for me it's more of a user issue rather than a hardware issue.

Yes, I've had Macs crash on me thousands of times. The worse OS I used was Mac OS 9.0.x.. crashed every 5 minutes.

Yes, especially when OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard first came out. It crashed every hour or so.

Yes, and the fact that it crashed more than my windows machine at the time made me never go back to a Mac system.

My Mac has crashed many times and it isn't uncommon for it to happen. I've had it crash while updating and rendering video and sometimes even for flash issues.

Surprisingly, no. I've never had a kernel panic or complete meltdown yet. It's frozen and caused me to restart, but nothing drastic.

Really...a lot of no's. Interesting, yes it has crashed or locked up more than once

My Mac has only crashed/froze/locked up when I was running Flash, it was a daily occurrence on my Powermac G4 MDD, but this doesn't happen on my iMac. Or it hasn't happened yet. I just can't wait until Flash is a term that is no longer used (even if this doesn't happen in my lifetime).

Yes three times actually when I was doing a lot of CPU intensive stuff like edited a movie and running an OS with parallels in the background

I've had apps crash, but my Mac Pro has never had a kernel panic occur.
