"When shutting down using the OS, Windows for example, it closes all programs (and prompts you to save files that are being edited, etc.), locks the paging file, records information for the next startup (i.e. desktop icon order, etc.), and dismounts all storage volumes and media readers.

A hard shutdown doesn't allow any of this to take place. If files are open, only the previous state of the files before being opened will remain. If the hard drive is writing data, that will be interrupted, leaving room for corrupt data, or in some cases, a completely corrupted hard drive (same applies to thumb drives and removable read/write media like memory sticks). It also is one of the causes of the "NTLDR is missing, press CTRL ALT DEL to restart" message, because of this.

Also, a regular shutdown disconnects power in a certain order for the hardware, and undue stress is imposed when doing a hard shutdown on the hardware, since everything's designed to be turned off in a certain order. While everything APPEARS to shutdown at once, there's microsecond intervals. Note that I didn't say it necessarily damages the hardware, just puts extra stress on it, possibly leading to a shorter hardware life."
