I love seeing foolish, arbitrary statements like this. 
Windows, when not shutdown properly, has the same message about disk checking. 
Does it matter that all of my relatives, gf and myself have been using Linux 
as our only desktop for a minimum of 5 years? How does that fit in with your 
statement? Perhaps "My parents freaked out over the disk check." instead 
of "Linux isn't ready."
