These articles always make me wonder why people are rebooting so often?
For desktops, UPSes are cheap nowadays, and power is pretty reliable
(and cheap) most places. And suspend/hibernate options for laptops
generally work pretty well in Linux (with notable exceptions of course).
Why are people rebooting so much that any of this is worth spending
