We do care about our users. However, due to the realities of volunteer
projects, we need users to help us help them. Reporting a bug that
"system freezes" isn't a problem that has an obvious solution: even
assuming that we understand what "system freezes" actually means,
there's not nearly enough informatino to figure out what causes it.
Just hopping in to say that a UI freeze may very well be only a UI
freeze, if you can still SSH into the box, you will know it is only your
desktop environment (or X) that has frozen.
But sometimes this "freeze" will also render e.g. ctrl-alt-F1
unoperable. So the only way, at that point, to test, is with a network
user. If the freeze is actually in the UI, then most likely, the whole
system would not have frozen.
Not sure at all if this is relevant.
