Windows Microsoft is working on a significant new feature for Windows Vista, known as Restart Manager, which is designed to update parts of the operating system or applications without having to reboot the entire machine. "If a part of an application, or the operating system itself, needs to updated, the Installer will call the Restart Manager, which looks to see if it can clear that part of the system so that it can be updated. If it can do that, it does, and that happens without a reboot." And here & here are some more shots of Vista build 5259.

We consantly add new luns to servers while online but the real kicker is having tape devices and changers come online to dozens of hosts at the same time because we had to reboot a bridge or added a new library. Drivers add and upgrade with no intervention most of the time. Truth of the matter Windows is far easier than most *nix in a SAN envronment because it's not dependant on special files and hardware paths.
