When you have a power cut in the middle of your work or any other case of "improper" turning off your computer, and, after restart, you notice that all files on which you were working are lost—and not lost in the sense "Damn, I've just lost last couple of minutes/hours of work", but in sense "What, the whole
files are gone?! Replaced with empty, null, zero-byte files?!"—then you'd know that no word is exaggeration enough for this fiasko.
However, as I said, I never witnessed that with Debian, but have seen it on Ubuntu
(though this failure wasn't Ubuntu's fault).
