Stack traces on the Web

How many WinDbg stack traces on the web are available for mining? Google gave the answer when I searched for typical stack trace text fragments:

"ChildEBP RetAddr" - about 40,200

"ChildEBP RetAddr  Args to Child" - about 30,000

"Frame IP not in any known module" - about 10,800

    Interesting finds!

    This took me to look for the trend of those but this was not possible.

    Anyways windbg trens is surprisingly flat over the years:

    If you look at the trends of BSOD you find it mostly stable since 2004 to mid 2006 but after this is a very noticable increase. I wonder why.

    Even more interesting is that “Debugging” keyword is on a consistent decreasing trend…

    Probably debugging get’s more irrelevant as software development gets mature with better framework and practices?

    Just noiced that bugcheck has 112,000 results
    “bug check” has almost 62,000
    BSOD has 2,240,000 (probably because of different meanings)

    Therefore I can explain the decline in “debugging” keyword by increasing ignorance of debugging by software development community
