There's an segment (albeit a Mac-biased one) in the documentary film, MacHeads, where one man philosophizes about making use of rebooting time:

"If you can open up every application without anything freezing, when are you ever going to pull yourself away from the computer? With a Windows computer, every so often, it doesn’t work anymore, and that gives you a chance to engage yourself in the life outside, even if for a few moments, while the thing reboots... When my computer reboots, I get a sandwich. I embrace life. I make a phone call. I look out the window and think, someday, I’ll go outside."

Perhaps imperfect technologies are a blessing in disguise.
