The software update manager appeared last night to tell me it wanted to install Java 1.4.1. Great. but then I noticed the little note at the bottom of the window.
Status: Not installed, restart will be required.
What the fuck?!
I have to reboot my machine afater upgrading Java? What is this, Windows?! It's JAVA for god's sake!
I'm really sick of having to reboot every time Apple throws some new software my way. It sure makes Linux shine. I have a Linux box with an update of over 420 days. I use it daily. I upgrade stuff all the time (thanks to apt-get). But the only time I'd have any need to reboot is if I have to physically move the mahine or upgrade the kernel.
Now let's think about my TiBook. I can move it all I want without a reboot because it has a built-in battery. So.... what? Is the kernel written in Java now?
Can someone please explain the necessity of the reboot? I honestly don't understand.
