I've been using flash-based on a few of my systems for a few years now
and I've worked pretty much flawlessly. Though on those I have never
ventured away from the ext2 filesystem since it has no journaling.
However, as cheap as they are now (usb sticks that is), it wouldn't be
a big deal to have a couple on stand-by in case on died.
