Define “restart”.

Flash asked me if I wanted to update just now. The dialog window looked like this:

Update_adobe_flash_player

“no restart is required”. Great I thought. Then I got to this window:

Adobe_flash_player_11_installer

“WTF?!” I though, they said that I did not need to restart anything! Oh, they mean “reboot”, but that’s weird, you never need to reboot. It like writing “Contains no poison” on food packaging. Then I remembered my Windows days and understood.

We don’t just need localization, we need platformization. Anyway, I cancelled the installation. Closing my browser and Spotify, just to install a new version of Flash? Nah. I use Flashblock anyway.
