If you're running GUI apps on your server, you're probably doing it
wrong. It's perfectly possible to do a completely non-X install of
Fedora, and that's how I'd recommend doing things for a server system.

You have to reboot on kernel updates (...duh) and udev updates. Possibly
a couple of other things, but those are the big ones. I believe it would
have been very difficult to architect things such that udev could be
restarted without needing a reboot to ensure correct operation. Most
apps just aren't coded to deal with the entire device node tree suddenly
disappearing and re-appearing underneath them...
