NIS 2013 updates still require restarts
One of the information points in the sticky post about NIS 2013 says that "all patches and product upgrades will be downloaded automatically and will not require a restart."
I just installed NIS 2013 and ran Live Update (because it didn't run on it's own for whatever reason) and the first thing it did after finishing installing the updates was tell me that I needed to restart to apply an update.
If requires restarts to apply some updates, why say it does not require restarts?
