For sure windows needs more reboots than linux does, but does this qualify as a quality grade for an OS? I have my doubts...

this become quite OT... but if you are in the way of compiling a video film (6 hours work) and you want to install an utility that need reboot, you do what?

Well,

although it is OT, I would probably save my work to disk, install the utility, reboot, reload my work and continue with my freshly installed utility. Admitteldly I never compiled a video, never do any work without regularly saving the status to disk, and never do system administration while I have valuable things that I do not want to destroy in front of me ;-))

Now,
if you worked in X, then did some work on the text terminal (ctrl-alt-F2), then you returned and found your X to be so garbled that you cannot see anything, not to mention saving your valuable work, you do what?
This happened to me.


Perhaps use the kill command to shut down those apps and then restart X.
