poor people ;) Their computers rid themselves of a bad vulnerability and rebooted.. *cries*

If I were an admin running a W2k3 production server system, I would VERY WELL want the system to ask me before it reboots!!
Ever seen a large, complex DB system come down hard? Sure, usually you can recover nicely, but it's extra work you just don't need.

No, people like him, (and other sheep around here who blindly defend Microsoft, NO MATTER WHAT), would not have seen a DB come down.
In fact they would never have seen a mission critical app, as the only experience they have of "computing" is playing games and running Microsoft Office.
