Even better is to use "ext3,ext2".  That way the filesystem can be
mounted by a kernel that doesn't support ext3.

While ext3 reduces the chance of corrupted disks, it does not
eliminate it.  You should still be running fsck on all your disks
occasionally.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
