I would tend to agree with that analysis. I have at least three people
floating around my office who were in the past 'before I educated them of
the value of uptimes' quite fond of simply pushing the power-off button on
the Slackware box (running reiserfs 3.x something) when going home at night.
This happened to the box innumerate times over the space of about three
months and not once did I hear a blip of complaint from log files or kernel
about any filesystem corruption.
