- no restart of OS, and not even restart of running application...


it's more than that:
- menus/icons don't get moved around / messed up,
- hard/software settings don't get reset,
- other/unrelated software doesn't get randomly shat upon...
- after upgrades temporary artifacts aren't left behind hogging storage space
...

and after updates the next time you start your machine:
windows: hold your breath hoping it starts,
... and if it does start still wonder how long it'll take to set back your preferences etc.
linux: looks, acts, works and everything is set exactly the same. straight back to work/play.

so refreshing!


but anyhoo was wondering more curious on how "selling" linux to 'SWMBO' went?
