> Windows Features still require restarts
I understand the restart when it's some major security update, alright. But this?
For a fucking application a FULL REBOOT?
I have a 2 drive RAID0 SSD array as system.
It's not about boot time, but about losing all the shit that I have open.
It's a pain in the ass to start from scratch.
Mum would never says such a thing, she would give me some tendies only.
I am trying to use Vivaldi, but it's still lacking a few features. Friedfox sucks, slow as shit.
Addons and themes - that made it great - are not working anymore.
Now it's just a fat, slow, sluggish, hip SJW browser with Hello™ and Pocket™.
Much easier to multi-thread with.
WinSCP works OK if you have a fast server.
If you have a big latency, Filezilla just fucks shit up, launches 30 threads, and it works.
Also WinSCP is written by a Russian, a white nigger. Why would I use that?
>It doesn't count as a restart if restart it later
I think the OP's point is that Windows is still a clusterfuck of idiocy and poor design that requires a restart for every tiny thing, even if that thing isn't a core component, largely because Windows is so bloated and contains so many layers upon layers that nobody, even Microsoft, understand how they really all interact and it's just easier and safer to restart the entire fucking system to start a service and make some DLL's available.
Will try it. Used it back then for S3.
Filezilla is still good for high latency transfers.
(With many files, that is.)
KDE could load back the entire desktop/session.
I am talking about my IDEs, RDP, Adobe, Word files, everything.
Once the retarded script is done, I will do the reboot, but it is a pain.
a) It only needs a restart for old style addons
b) most new addons don't need a restart anymore
c) old style addons will be gone soon.

If you don't restart, you cannot use or install your application.

Yes you can most of the time, it's just a restart is recommended. For example, almost any game can be installed and uninstalled and reinstalled as many times as you want without a restart
I am talking about these "Windows Features" shit.
.MSI uses it.
Basically it says "I need to have feature X to work/run".
Then you have to install X, and reboot.
You cannot just unpack the installer.
Of course the files are all there, good luck with disassembling the MSI (with Orca?), and copying everything in place.
It's not the end of the world, but it's still ...just silly.
Misunderstood me there.
Yes, there are applications that pop up that "hurr durr, restart" dialog.
But that's okay, you can just ignore that one.
And usually the installed application works just fine.
But here, you cannot progress, until you do the reboot.
