Not just for a server OS.  Any OS would get rock solid from it.  The problem
that a crashing computer kills your installation is only partly gone with
journalling as in ext3.  With transactions there is no way a crash can destroy
the system, not even if it happens during an upgrade of critical components.
Unless the crash is in the hardware, notably the hard disk, of course.
