6 updates, 6 times you "may need to restart your computer for this update to take effect"

Sigh...

Guess these are only for RTM. Nothing showing except a bunch of language packs for RC2.

Great! language packs finally!

Waiting for the animated wallpaper extra

I thought Vista was supposed to cut back on the need to restart?

Not trolling. Really, this was supposed to be a feature of Vista.

TechLarry,

It's probably just one restart. Just like nearly all XP updates indicate the possibility of a restart, but it's 1 restart at the end, not one for each update. Plus, many updates that have that language don't often require a restart, it's just a CYA thing.

One restart for all 8 - if you opted in for all of them on a fully patched Vista RTM box. [less any language packs, which were also optional].

IE had some new anti-phising code and if you opted for the Bit-Locker update [optional], on Enterprise, or Ultimate edtions, that would cause the need for a restart.

The new animated desktops won't be available until after midnight tonight - EST and only for Ultimate edition RTM builds.

I wouldn't be surprised to find that the updates are available only for Ultimate RTM builds that are ACTIVATED.

We'll see tonight at midnight...

From what I know, "hot patching" will be in Vista once Service Pack 1 is released. SP1 will bring new kernel to Vista (from Windows Server 2007), including improved "hot patching". Restarts will still be required for kernel patches, though. We'll see, I guess.

#8, Many things that required a restart in the past no longer do - video card drivers, for example, have not. When updates have been released for Vista RTM, I have been surprised when they require a restart - only twice that I can recall since November and despite a few updates being available periodically. Relevant services, however, do stop/start and the test machines do enter their protected desktop modes on occasion. Candidly, it almost seems more elegant and takes less time to stage a restart at the end of the update process than it does to support the hot-patching process.

I never understood the big deal about rebooting on a desktop OS after an update. A server OS I want the maximum uptime but is it really going to kill someone to take less then a minute to reboot their desktop system? Seems like just needing something to whine about.
