Does any kind of evidence (apart from PR-flack-based spin) exist

This is what Microsoft tells me what they gather from the online error
reporting and crash analysis, and it comports with my experience as
well. I know I've caused my own share when I was writing print drivers:
no way those were Microsoft's fault.

I suppose that even if this data is as claimed, it could be skewed by
those who primarily see MS-caused faults choosing not to submit these
reports. I very much doubt the details are public, so one is probably
left to the mercy of whether you believe Microsoft or not.
