I have had much trouble with this OS. Both on my desktop and on a laptop, the  
OS will crash anywhere from 0-10 minutes after startup every time without  
incident. I doubt this is an installation issue as the Technoethical laptop  
came with the OS previously installed. Re-installing doesn't help. I have no  
idea what kind of programmer fancied this project is even close to being  
viable for production when it appears this unstable. There is no way in hell  
mainstream adoption is possible with these kind of gaping bugs.

The sloppiness of this software, combined with the lack of awareness and  
concern of these bugs in the free software movement will be its downfall. I  
am a programmer myself and this apathy deeply worries me. I'm happy to  
provide help to make this software more accessible and usable if someone can  
help point me in the right direction. Let's start with whatever bug is  
causing the fatal crash on my machine.

Attached is a good portion of my syslog. There were probably at least a dozen  
crashes within this log. I've been looking at the behavior right before the  
system shuts down to look for patterns. Thus far the primary culprits seem to  
- indicator-application-service
- systemd

I actually staved off the problem for awhile by running a script that  
restarts indicator-application-service every single second, which prevented  
the crashes for a solid day, then they came back again. Plus, that's somewhat  
of a hacky solution that wouldn't be ideal long term anyway.

Any fixes or ideas are appreciated.
