Having to reboot just for loading a driver is a good reason indeed to ditch a distro.
Being aimed at beginners is no reason to teach them wrong things.
On a linux system you DON?T reboot for loading a driver, and ubuntu should ask to restart X, not to reboot (so that your beginner learns something about the system just been installed). Having beginners find a comfortable environment doesn't mean importing Windows flaws...
By the way I did try myelf to just restart X, and when it restarted I got the message again to reboot.
And using my two minutes (which I do have) to get things done rather than waiting for a rebooting is one of the reasons to use linux...
