Yes, Squeak as an application on top of an OS is very stable. I am not sure but I can't recall
that I have ever managed to hang any OS that I have used it on (extensively Linux, NT4 and Win98),
and this goes back to version 2.4 and up.
And IN Squeak most things are also solid - of course, it blows up here and there but Squeak ITSELF
(as an environment) manages mostly to stay out of harm. The last weeks I have dabbled quite a lot
with concurrent programming and popping up debuggers to the left and right and sure, sometimes it
goes bad but quite seldom.
