I am curious to know why we are not periodically checking file systems
after every N boots on the XO laptop.
The biggest reason I can assume is because every Nth time the system
will appear to boot very slowly to the user thus creating the

However, in light of the fact that XO's often operate in harsh
environments and (probably) greater possibility of hardware failure
because of that, would it be a good idea in doing so?
Perhaps we could mount /boot and /home on different partitions and
check /boot periodically.
One issue that is pertinent to this discussion is
