The ext4 file system seems to be addressing some of these issues, by allowing online defragmentation and introducing a
much faster e2fsck. Details at https://ols2006.108.redhat.com/2007/Reprints/mathur-Reprint.pdf
There was a tray applet that monitored how many reboots you had left and let you postpone the fsck on boot.
However, a comment in the forum says it's no longer developed. I tried it a while back and it worked fine, but I've got
a fast laptop and didn't bother to install it when I upgraded.
