I like this quote, but I have seen systems which this is not TRUE :(, I help  my students clean out their windows machines, and they had to force shutdown(Pressing and holding power button, machine was not responding had AV virus/spyware/trojan(you name it) ) and the NTFS partition was cleanly unmounted and therefore not easily read :(

But I still like your quote :)
