No. All my linux experience has been with ext2, and all my professional
experience has been with VMS, various RTOS's, MSDOS, Windows, and small
standalone systems. I never had a crash that I couldn't identify as a
hardware problem, and I never dug deep enough into linux to learn all
the intricacies of file systems and such. I only dumped Windows two
years ago because suse9.0 appeared to work well enough that I could
depend upon it for my contract work. OpenOffice was the trigger -- it
meant I could deal with clients chained to Windows without being chained
myself. So I didn't have to get XP and Office.
That's a normal thing for any
filesystem. All can get corrupted - otherwise, the
fsck utility would not
Sure. But it's rare enough with ext2 that I never had a problem that I
couldn't identify as a hardware disk crash, and several people on this
list complained of mysterious reiser3 partition corruption. As I say, I
didn't take them too seriously until it happened to me.
