From the Inquirer:

RUNNING your laptop on the user friendly Ubuntu Linux could shorten the life span of your hard-drive.

According to the bugs forum at Launchpad, when you switch to battery power on an Ubuntu laptop the hard drive goes though a load cycle a minute.

A standard laptop can handle about a 600,000 cycles in its lifetime which means that you will need a new hard drive every 1.1 years.
