both should do about the same thing...I believe they're usually
all links to the same underlying executable and that the
executable sniffs what it was executed as to determine proper
I'm lazy and "reboot"/"halt" are both faster for me to type and
easier for me to remember, so that's what I use.
If I need more precision for some reason (to shut down at some
time other than now), I fall back to using "shutdown", but most
of the time I just want to reboot/powerdown *right now*.
