But given the organically complex nature of current APIs, the sorry state of software QA in general, and how intimately 3rd party software tends to be entwined with the OS (don't get me started), I'm not willing to rule it out. Yeah, Steam should not have the ability to crash the OS... but "should not" is not the same as "can not".
