I noticed when going through the list of updates that the reboot was
required (maybe it said recommended?), anyway I had the option to reboot
now or later when the upgrade was complete, and there may have been a
timer till reboot was automatic (I guess I wasn't looking too closely!)
I guess this is the price we pay to make linux more grandma friendly,
but maybe items like this could be dependent upon some switch somewhere
(an "Expert" switch? or an "Easy" button)
I usually use yum out of habit so it is rare I see this thing anyway.
If it's any comfort too you Ubuntu does pretty much the same thing.
