My Z87x box has been running quite well now for a long time. However, whenever I'm directed to inspect either the system.log file, or the various other log files, I'm stunned by how much chaos is being reported in these files. Hundreds or thousands of errors going on all the time, complaints, missing this, cannot do that... is this pretty much the norm for osx machines? I can't imagine 'real' Macs are logging all these errors, are they?

Just curious. It's funny because up front, you'd never know this is happening... things just seem to work, no error dialogs to speak of, it seems that life is good... but boy, if you read the logs, holy moly.
