I've read that NTFS was anything but stable in the face of outages. Of course, this does not match my own experiences; I'd rank it as merely average. ext4fs has survived issues worse than NTFS has, but NTFS isn't that bad, really.

NTFS was one of the earliest journaling filesystems to appear on, what were considered at the time, low-end machines. If you go back 15-20 years or so, your Windows machines did a lot more crashing, so it was good that the filesystem usually recovered itself without a lot of effort. Linux didn't have the crashing problem but if it was stopped for whatever reason without an unmount, the non-journaling ext2 filesystem that was common at the time, had a recovery that was time-consuming and not always successful.

This all seems like ancient history, though. Journaling filesystems are pretty mature across the board at this point. I can't remember the last time I sat through a chkdsk or a fsck.

Today is the 15th anniversary of the day that some dumbass at a power plant in Ohio attached Windows servers to the plant network, causing a chain reaction that blacked out power in the entire northeastern united states.

I think nuclear submarines are powered by Windows, too. Heh.

So, that's special.
