A lot of the errors are not the fault of the OSes.
Like, if you eat something that is spoiled or (so-called) bad and you get sick... is it your body's fault or the food you ate. Not the best analogy; but it should suffice.
For the hardware they were developed for; OSX and Windows 7 are very stable OSes.
It is the drivers, add-ons, and misc. code that can disrupt them.
Unapproved hardware can cause problems.
Poorly written (add-on) code and faulty/crappy hardware are an OSes worst enemies.
As with most things... they are only as stable as the sum of the parts.
this and this. Can you say shady registry cleaners and AV programs?
