I would love to say that something like this is totally isolated to Windows, but I've had random Linux updates in the past wipe out my desktop path and my projects path (thank goodness for SVN at the time). Backups are a must because any developer (including us) can do something purely by accident.

Luckily most Linux distros that aren't rolling release don't force updates. Rolling release... well that's what you signed up for.
