because fools don't check the list of *already updated* packages while
should check it *before* to get an idea of the possible impact we talk
about a Linux system as it would be Microsoft Windows?
do what you want but please avoid on a public list to sound like Linux
reboot every time you touch it
You should not call normal users fools, they trust their system
maintainers, not every user knows the packages and their purpose.
kernel, systemd, and others needs reboot to activate the newer versions,
and if some user who doesn't know what glibc trusted the package
maintainers and updated everything, he is not a fool.
in fact as long as you don#t have network aware services it don't
that a view background processes have loaded a older library and with
logout/login you kill any process actively used by your session
