what i do not understand is that Roger Ver is known to spend money to keep people in his side so that BU has some followers and he is know to be a big whale,but why is he not able to spend those money to get competent developers and testers before boasting about it, after all these failed attemps who is going to believe him.
Some people can't be bought? I joke that I'm bitcoin operated since I code for bitcoin, but I'd never code on BU just because he threw money at me (note I'm a mining/pool software developer, not core code.)

so he tried to corrupt you too? all this under the table drama, make me think there is more than meets the eye here
Not me personally, no.

I was away for a few day and not surprised to see that BU crashed again. However, what was causing the problem? Is the same bug also found in core?? I guess this is a good learning opportunity for everyone (BU or Core) as that the same problem will not happenand can be avoided/prevented in future.

It's likely a memory leak. Oom-killer is a native Linux app that kills apps that are using too much memory before they overflow the system memory. Some are claiming it's in the xthin code. I have yet to see a concrete breakdown. Good that they are fixing their buggy code now when less people are running it...

Somebody posted a great question on one of these threads:

Would you really trust future of your Bitcoins to people who cannot keep their network operational for 2 weeks without interruption?

Not a  Ver fanboy, but you must admit that his retort was pretty good:

When a bug is found in BU's code their devs scramble to fix it. When a bug is found in Core's economic code they refuse to fix it.
