Just like Linus said "Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow", the same holds true here.
Ummm, it wasn't Linus that said that, it was Eric S. Raymond in The Cathedral and the Bazaar
But hey, this kind of proves your point!
The term Crap came from John Crapper the inventor of the Toilet.

I agree, it could have been more explicit in giving a brief description, but was it really that difficult to glean what it does from the summary?
Is there some reason the version under Linux would be so comparatively fragile?
My understanding is that Silicon Graphics (now SGI) wrote XFS specifically for their hardware which was designed to handle power failures, and would maintain enough power to finish it's current I/O operations. Since almost none (if any) x86 hardware has this built-in feature, XFS isn't as robust as it was on native SGI hardware. I can't find the references for this tibit, though. So take it with a grain of salt. It's just what I remember being told when XFS was first appearing on the Linux scene.
Although, some of the issues that people see on XFS may be due to modified files that haven't been flushed to disk before the system loses power. XFS intentially zeros any unwritten data blocks to avoid possible security issues arising from residual data . I believe XFS also uses out-of-order writes for both meta-data and data so a loss of power could mangle some data.
"Anderson was told by Jobs in late January 2001 that Jobs had an agreement with the board of directors to grant stock options on Jan. 2, according to the statement from Anderson's attorney. Anderson "cautioned" Jobs that the grant for executives would have to be priced based on the date of the board agreement "or there could be an accounting charge," and also told Jobs the board would have to confirm it had given prior approval for the grant dates "in a legally satisfactory method." Jobs assured him that the board had given approval and Anderson "relied on these statements by Mr. Jobs and from them concluded the grant was being properly handled," the statement said.
