    Fortunately, I can speak not only as a home Linux & Android user, but as a business world one, also. I do so in a 400 employee, $24mil organization and lead their I.T. and we use Linux almost exclusively. We are certainly not typical, and it is not without challenges. But there are some significant rewards to being atypical, as such.

    Rebooting is necessary for most people.
    I do feel for them

    Lol, funny. My uptime has been quite impressive, thus far.

    As for rebooting on a Windows platform, if you run checks (or create cronjobs, for the super geek) you won't have to reboot for anything. Messing around with programs in such a manner will clog up the registry; which can easily be checked, cleared, and continue to move on. On a Linux/Android environment, there isn't a registry and it can handle such changes on-the-fly. If you want to reboot, reboot. Technically, you won't ever really HAVE to. But, to do so, is your own decision.

    My Nexus doesn't freeze or reboot. The most problem I've had was when I used Chrome and System UI crashed. By the time the error came up, the service had already restarted itself and the system moved along as usual without an actual restart. I have pushed my Nexus hard enough to restart, once, just to see what kind of pressure it could tolerate. Impressed, I was. Had three high rendering games, 100 tabs on two browsers. 50 on another, several messaging apps, and IRC before it restarted itself.

    My Nexus has never rebooted itself either. For the first time yesterday I had to manually reboot it because I couldn't get the xfinity app to launch. Aside from that, I I have had zero freezing/rebooting problems.

    I had hoped my freezing was the OS but you'd make it sound like hardware.

    Should every one that has it crash a lot RMA it?

    Never turn off my Note 2 or 10.1 Note. The cache is automatically cleared daily. As for charging, the N2 throughout the day due to use and the 10.1 Note during the night.

    For all intents and purposes, we're fairly certain that it is an OS level issue, not hardware. But, you have to take in consideration that each of us are going to use our Nexus 10s differently. Whatever the specific bug is, I may have simply been avoiding it through my general behaviour while using mine. Which, personally, strikes me as odd; as I do pretty much everything you can do on a tablet. I game, video calls through Skype, surf webpages via browser, check Google Currents, read books through Google Play, listen to music via Winamp and Spotify, steam movies through Netflix and Crunchyroll, use remote assistance via TeamViewer to help friends, and so on.

    Either way, as far as we know, it's near-official that the problem is with Android.

    I must say since I've stopped powering down every night, I have started to experience some freezing and rebooting problems. Coincidence? Doesn't seem like it.

    May mean you're running processes in the background that are causing such issues. I do make sure that I only keep messenger programmes running in the background when I have it sleeping/charging.

    That would be too much hassle for me. Powering down and up when it's charging is simpler, and it's quick.

    Lol. Too much hassle? That's just loading up the multitasking screen and swiping away unnecessary browsers and opened programs. But, okay. (:
    As I've said before, we're all going to have different styles of using the tablet and will experience different reactions from Android and the hardware due to it.

    I work with both. Rebooting is definitely a way of life with Windows, but there have definitely been times when I've had to reboot my linux/unix/BSD servers as well, granted MUCH less often.

    I find rebooting as great way to clear out the "gremlins and cobwebs", no matter what kind of system you are running. Although, if you've been running a Windows computer "for months" without rebooting, then I can only imagine that you're also run running without the latest security patches either.
