Personal opinion (and only that): not much chance for a filesystem
trashing.

There's more chance of something just not _working_ than of disk
corruption. Ie you may find that some driver you need doesn't compile
because it hasn't been updated to the new world order yet, for example.

And people still report problems booting, for example, whatever the
reason. So make sure you have a working choice in your lilo
configuration or whatever.

But from what we've seen lately, there really aren't reports of
corrupted disks or anything like that that I've seen. Which is
obviously not to say that it couldn't happen, but it's not a very likely
occurrence.

That said, I can't set other peoples risk bars for them.
