iTunes is not some little app - it's a big one. They need to figure out how to do updates better.
(Granted many MS patches require a reboot, but most do not (these days).
Was using Ubuntu the other day...needed to install some codecs. Installed and worked just fine...no restart. I guess the Unix advantage (and why Macs don't require a restart).

The main problem with "dumping" Windows is that everything is supported/works/easy to do. When you go to the Mac, there isn't the same range of apps, and some things are a harder to do.
HOWEVER, the rise of open source apps and solutions have shrunk this gap. I have many Macs, but it's not quite at the point where I can make it my primary computer. But it's getting closer.

software update.....reboot......moments later, back online.
some of you are either dramatic, like the drama, or are plain silly.
sorry, i personally don't buy it.
i have a macbook pro along with other macbooks in the house. i also have a pc for gaming purposes. they all get their share of updates and the such.
rebooting is not cumbersome, that is what i said. it just takes a few moments out of your computing life when it actually has to occur, ESPECIALLY at the household level.
Even when rebooting is relatively fast, i often have lots of windows and processes going, and windows keeps nagging until you reboot. I don't want to reboot until I'm done with my work.
And on my servers (I run two for web, email, printersharing, DNS, etc.) rebooting is actual downtime.

i said it wasn't "cumbersome" as someone had described it to be. as for rebooting at work, many of us do so at weeks end, if not, it takes a few minutes for us at most. as for the servers, our IT dept handles them.
closing projects, and doing a restart is not "cumbersome." it might be frustrating, it might take some time, it might make you furious, it might be a pain in the ***, but i hardly would describe it as "cumbersome." that is my opinion.

some of you are pretty funny. it's quite apparent the lengths you go to to make yourselves feel above the rest.
Cardfan and I are the minority, and we still use Ouija boards to get our work done. Happy now?
oh, by the way, how's that iPhone treating ya? ooops, i forgot, you don't own one.....

WHo even put the word "cumbersome" in this thread?! lmao
I don't knwo but I equate annoying & frustrating to cumbersome and having to do a reboot because Windows Xp and OS X decided there where some vital updates is annoying. Lunux does it w/o the reboot so that's great in my book. And as said the more processes you got going the longer the reboot esp on Windows!
