    Why the need to reboot after updating Windows?

    BySusan Bradley

    In a meeting with MS UK around the time of Vista RC I was told the reason that reboots were done was that because the code developers were specialists in one area they didn't know what effect their changes made on other developers code so they used a 'better safe than sorry' regime.
