It's off topic, but 99% of the persistant BSOD (blue screen of death) 
crashes I've debugged and that's many over many computers were fixed
by replacing the memory with a higher grade product.

This too can be fixed. You just need to have at least two COMPETENT
QA people per programer. That's how you get five nines (99.999%) reliability,
which is the standard in the telephone industry.

The major difference between a cell phone and an Orion is there is much more
for the computer to do in a cell phone.
