forced fsck (again?)



hello everyone.

i guess this has been asked before, but haven't found it in the faq.

i have the following issue...

it is not uncommon nowadays to have desktops with filesystems
in the order of 500gb/1tb.

now, my kubuntu (but other distros do the same) forces a fsck
on ext3 every so often, no matter what.

in the past it wasn't a big issue.

but with sizes increasing so much, users are now forced to wait
for several minutes (every so often) for their desktops to boot up.

to the point that the thing has become unacceptable.

i know i can tune/disable this, but i'd like to understand once
and for all what is the technical rationale behind this practice
and what use is there to force a fsck on a clean fs...

i must be missing something... :-(

thanks in advance.

cheers.
