My experience of running Linux on my personal local interactive (rather than server) systems over the past eighteen years leads me to believe that the long-term benefit of *prophylactic* fsck invocations triggered by mount-count or interval-since-check is approximately zero, since *those* invocations of fsck have never discovered FS corruption on my systems.

I mean, sure, I've *had* filesystem corruption on my personal local interactive Linux systems - but it was always in a scenario of "hardware failure" or "unclean shutdown".

Other people's experience may, of course, be different.
