I'd appreciate you saying that upfront then, instead of making sweeping, inaccurate unqualified statements. Or else you are going to force me into doing the same right back.
You guys should know by now that I will. Its one of my favorite diversions.
BSOD is rare. Just as rare as Kernel Panic or an unrecoverable spinning beach ball of death. The main difference between a BSOD and a KP on a Mac is that yes, the BSOD will force a restart of your computer, but before it does this, it TELLS YOU WHAT WENT WRONG SO YOU CAN FIX IT. Kernel Panic doesn't tell you what program, conflict, or hardware issue is F'ing you up. I beachballed a G5 tower so hard once that not even the power button would function. I had to unplug it from the wall.
I have not seen a BSOD in nine years.
Viruses are also, in actuality, pretty rare. Especially if you use a modicum of discretion while online. It's pretty hard to get one. You generally have to be a pretty dim bulb in most cases.
