Opinion: booting pre 10.2.2 system should not be a problem
Authored by: crkrenn on May 03, '03 11:01:25AM

I do not believe that booting a prejournaled system should at all be a
problem because it is not a problem on ext3 linux systems with
journaling.

The worse that I think could happen is if a journaled system goes down
with a power failure. If you now boot or mount that disk with a
prejournaled system, you may lose some data on open files, and fsck
should run automatically.

This is my opinion, based on my experience with the ext3 journaling
system in linux. Journaling is designed to increase data safety. Until I
have convincing evidence to the contrary, I am trusting that apple (&
BeOS) did the job right.

Of course, I'm also periodically mirroring my drive, but I did that before,
and I think that is simple common sense.
