It's not that I like to pick on Microsoft. It's just that they keep doing things that make me shake my head in amazement.

Take, please take, for example, the revelation that Microsoft is working on a significant new feature for Windows Vista, known as Restart Manager.

Guess what it does? Yes, it's designed to update the operating system or applications without having to reboot the entire machine!

Jim Allchin, the co-president of Microsoft's platform products and services division and one of the few folks at Microsoft that I respect, thinks that this is a pretty big deal.

Well, he's right. It is.

It's just that, well, we've been able to do this in Linux/Unix land since... the 80s?
