Lots of people live dangerously for a long time without realizing it.
I've been running CURRENT on my laptop since months before 5.0-Release
and I think I've only had to resort to my backup once. If I had been
luckier, it would have never happened. (And, if my timing had been a bit
worse, it could have happened a LOT more often.)
Until someone has been bitten, they almost never do backups and, after
being bitten they get careless after a while. Takes a few bites (or a
really nasty one) before the lesson is really learned.
(Glances at laptop running dd(1) as we speak. Yes, I had already started
it before reading this thread.)
