Of course, the reasons of these bugs and crashes are various and, before submitting a bug report, users should watch this video but sometimes they could be simply avoided by following these simple rules:
- Keep your OS up-to-date.
- Update your GPU drivers.
- Use the latest version of Blender.
To lower the number of reports, I suggest to use the “Nudge Theory” on several pages of the website, but to begin, with the Downloads page.

I think that it would worth considering to add a simple/short sentence on the Download Page (and why not, on the Blender Splashscreen ?) to incite users to follow the three steps above.
Blender works best with an up-to-date OS and with the latest GPU drivers.
Users noticed less crashes with Blender on an up-to-date OS and with the latest GPU drivers.
