An OS crash test

What is happening after an electricity lost of power to your computer? Ah... ah... good question. Here are the results based on what I get when two of the computers of my lab tried/succeeded to restart: my workstation (Sun Solaris 9 12/02 Operating System, x86 Platform Edition - in fact SunOS 5.9) and on one of our servers (OpenBSD/i386 3.1 Release).

No problem for OpenBSD to go on (and it has a lot of work with all servers running on itself) but the Solaris station always crashes its filesystem. It is very confusing to have to manualy fix the filesystem everytime. Hopefuly this new release of Solaris was free...
