Yes that is exactly what I was asking. For a high reliable system running
24/7 my fear using Object Oriented code vs procedural code is exactly what
you mentioned . If there is a serious leak , or even a small one for an
extended period of time , it can take down the OS. I have seen this happen
with Sun OS and a 3rd party driver that leaked and caused the OS to crash
after an extended period of time.
