    Congrats on the necro.

    Besides, I won't use Hurd until it runs Mono and C#. Without Mono, my favourite applications won't run so it's useless.

    With minix the difference is not two, but 140 times, so even phlegmatic will notice the difference. Most users also care about things like copying time etc. Hurd is dead.

    I think that's what you missed.
    Don't have many issues with graphics drivers here...
    Just about any core Windows library, service, or kernel update takes a reboot; with Linux, libraries just mean running ldconfig (which dpkg/apt/... run automatically), and services are just "service xyz restart".
    The kernel still takes a reboot, unless you know what you're doing (hint: ksplice)
    The "interesting updates"--that would be like Windows Vista -> Seven.
    You're confusing Canonical's representation of reality with how Linux actually works.
    Tshh, donīt wake the latent windows troll.
