I don't know of you would call this crashing or not but today my phone's screen was blank and nothing I did would "wake" it up. I finally reverted to my BlackBerry roots and pulled the battery. It worked and all is back to normal. I have no idea what happened. I usually don't run GPS to keep the phone running faster and I usually restart it every few days.
It's the hero/eris user interface that makes our phones unique amongst android. Like motoblur, its HTC touch of glamor. It provides great look and feel, is accompanied with some awesome widgets and also hives us 7 pages to put crap on. It also cones with the sacrifice of being only 1.5 compatible, but a 2.1 release is in the works
