 Linux System Shutdown

Linux Gazette walks through a Linux System Shutdown.

"This used to be much more of a problem with older UNIX and Linux filesystems. A relatively new type of filesystem called ajournaling file system addresses this problem to some extent by saving a transaction log of filesystem changes that can be replayed when the system is restarted. The Reiser and ext3 filesystems are examples of a journaling file system. Even with these new filesystems it is much safer to properly shut down your system."
