Excellent point especially for Linux users. There is workaround , see http://community.wdc.com/t5/Desktop/Green-Caviar-High-Load-Cycle-Cout-after-short-operation-time/td-p/15731 and also there is a utlity (but needs to run in DOS, in this forum there is a guide on how to build a flash stick with bootable DOS or a bootable CD) which can change the park time to more than 8 secs, up to 5 mins on the newer drives, or disabled it. The DOS utility is downloadable from http://support.wdc.com/product/download.asp?groupid=609&sid=113&lang=en and is called "RE2GP Idle Mode Update Utility". There was some debate as to whether the Caviar Green Power series of disk could use this utility but if you read on to the about page 7 onwards of the forum it reports positively.
You can monitor the LCC using Crystaldiskinfo.
