It's interesting that the software is more reliable than the hardware.

This comes up on the PostgreSQL lists a lot.  A vast majority of the
data corruption problems that people report turn out to be hardware
failures.  PostgreSQL is actually several orders of magnitude more
reliable than the average box it runs on.  FreeBSD is the same way,
in my experience.
