It is obviously not necessary!
That's what they said about a GUI for Linux, back when it didn;t have one that was worth a crap. But, by your reasoning, it's obviously not necessary for Linux to have a recoverable file system. So, if that's the case, why are we still discussing NASTY and pathetic attempts to recover files like this article describes? This despite the fact that "the Linux world has had fifteen years to come up with" something. Anything!
You may wish to go down a rat hole about whether or not Ext2/3 needs defrag, while I couldn't care less. My original statement stands. The Ext2/3, Reiser et al are severely lacking when compared to modern file systems from Novell and Microsoft. But, true to form, the Linux crowd here doesn't want to admit the facts and would rather argue to the death with irrelevant minutae.
Just look at this thread, the excuses are outrageous and oh so typical. 'Linux taught me not to make such mistakes' WTF!?!?!?!? You're kidding yourselves!!!
