Hell, since I do not depend on LOW-BUDGET, I have never killed a CPU
even by SICK programming even my SuperSparc CPU survived.

Please can anyone advice me, about VERY VERY good Hardware design to
prevent its destruction by software Errors?

You can even send me examples of such broken Hardware...

Oh yes, since I am using exclusivly Debian GNU/Linux none of my project
will work with a well known proprietary OS and my hardware specs will be
entirely open even if I code the stuff my own (currently).

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day
