Weird. I haven't defragged in a year. I just checked, and I'm 1% fragmented.
I also frequently install/reinstall software, and add/erase large amounts of files, big and small.

I know my experience isn't universal, but my usage pattern should be the type that causes much fragmentation, yet it doesn't.
