Running Ubuntu 12.04 64 Bit edition [ and Loving it :D]
I mostly update through Terminal using
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
I couldn’t understand this ,
That, having Firefox or any other such integrated Application Actively running along with update process running concurrently in terminal, which is updating firefox to newer version . I am aware that that restarting firefox will be opened with newer version or rather any other application for that matter.
My Question is ,
For Example-Updating in MS Windows 7 , it asks for closing the Active Instance of same application (if active) for updating.
[ I am not Comparing the OS's]
How does Ubuntu replaces the active working application to newer version without interfering with its active Instance. [Noticed for many Packages]
What exactly does happen at the Back-end of Updating process in such matter.
P.S. - Couldn't resist the temptation , so atlast i asked it (could be a stupid question though) :D
