      As I’ve used Linux since about Slackware 0.3 I have a few versions under my belt.

      Some were for general use, then embedded work and finally servers.

      Not once did I worry about safeguarding my data since data I want to keep is on backups. It’s not the OS’s job to stop you from losing data.
