I wouldn't make a general statement such as that, especially when referring to a Mircosoft product.
I've experienced my fair share of freezes/crashes with Windows 7 64-bit, specifically issues that seem to be tied to my usage of Firefox 3.6. It could simply be my unique setup, but I can't see how my setup would be that much different from everyone else who uses Firefox 3.6. I've mostly experienced freeze-ups when uploading files via Firefox in my CPanel; not exactly sure what triggers it, but IE surprisingly handles the same function just fine. Then again, you could argue that this is a bug with Firefox and not Windows 7, which is a reasonable argument. However, Firefox is not the only program that has caused some issues with my installation of Windows 7. I've frozen-up quite a few times in games using Steam, as well as some games that do not use Steam (such as Halo 2 for PC). Like I've said before, it could be my particular setup, but many people have complained about the Halo 2 server list bug on Windows 7, for example, so I doubt that it is just me. And although most Steam users know that Steam does not have the best track record when it comes to stability, I've never experienced as many freeze-ups and crashes with Windows Vista as I have with Windows 7. These issues are not too frequent, but they always seem to occur at the most inopportune times.
I could continue to go on with my list, and some may argue that these bugs are quite trivial in the greater scope of things, and I would agree with that. However, with regards to the particular statement of yours which I quoted about, I could certainly find even more reasons to refute such a claim. I'm not saying you're entirely wrong, just that it's a big of an ill-supported generalization.
