I tried ubuntu 11.04 alpha 3. My unity crashes every time! I got an NVidia, I tried with the opensource driver and the closed driver. Why does unity crash every time? This is so unstable compared to other alpha. Will Natty still get an unstable compiz? I just want to know if every ubuntu machine will crash every time in the future. This will break the reputation of linux that it never crashes.

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
At first I was worried too while I had the same problem. But after few updates it became much more stable. I believe that for the release date, compiz should be pretty stable.
For now if you get a crash and you loose the window manager (the bar with minimize, maximize and close buttons), just press
There's also a bug report about that problem, you can track it HERE.
Oh and BTW crashing compiz does not crash Linux by a long shot xD
