I use Linux to avoid random OS crashes, I have redundant power to avoid
random power failures, and I don't let others near the boxes to avoid
random button pushes.

I expect my system to shut down cleanly.  Databases, filesystems, etc.
are much happier when the rug isn't pulled out from under them.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
