you don't follow the list very well, and obviously didn't read the post that
this replies to so don't go around calling people inconsistent.  Windows
forces you to reboot and there is no mandatory reboots in Linux and windows
does force you to restart, don't restart when it ask you and see what
happens, it will not continue without insisting that you restart.  Where do
you get this crap?  With windows you cannot avoid a restart. And there is no
auto-restart in windows it is auto-update and with auto-update you have no
choice it will restart for you. Try it then tell me about it.
