Before we go off on a rant on whether MS should be allowed to reboot our machines, let's make sure they actually do it.
I have two machines, XPSP2 and 2003SP1, and both downloaded the patch and then asked me if I wanted to install it, and then asked me if I wanted to reboot. I wasn't forced into anything.
You'll note I did qualify it, and rather than turn it into an MS is bad asked the question is ANYTHING important enough?
This is not about "it happened", but more "when is it acceptable to happen"
