Ubuntu has traditionally been pretty good about updates being applied w/o the need of a reboot. However, most of the updates I have received since installing Hardy have required a reboot before they take effect. Whats up with that? I am not one of those people who takes pride in their uptime counter, but it seems like I cant make it a single day anymore before ubuntu wants to reboot. I just hope rebooting after an update becomes a common event that we can expect to continue in the future.
