Windows is today a gigantic hardware and software ecosystem and Microsoft has not improved the stability of Windows 10 compared to the previous ones. What it has done is make troubleshooting easier in a number of ways, especially with restore points and different system recovery modes (including from the cloud).
Most problems are not that serious and can be solved in a faster and more convenient way.
