It turns out all hard links will be deleted after user log off. The
file system is: `type ncpfs (rw,nosuid,nodev)' as I am running Emacs
on my Univ's server.

Is there any reason to choose hard link over symbolic link?

All regular files are hard links.  A hard link is just a name for a
file on disk.  "emacs" is one name for the executable and
"emacs-22.0.92" is another name for the same executable.  There's no
concept of one being a link to the other, they are both names for the
same file on disk.  If "all hard links" are deleted, then both "emacs"
and "emacs-22.0.92" will be deleted, along with all your other files.
