Reading this, a discussion I had at the ICMC comes to my mind.
For one of the installations they were using a Macintosh with MAX,
the artist told me that they had to reboot the machine every day.
I asked why they didn't consider using pd (we have already several
long term installations that run over years !).

The answer was the following:
They were told that PD comes with all these extensions, which makes it
really useful, but that these extensions are really buggy. Thats why they
preferred using MAX.

Their fault I know, but it made me think ...
