It apparently works as a system service. The Restart Manager will be able to stop certain parts of the OS for update purposes, update, and then start it again, seamlessly. No reboots, no fuss. Not only that, but if a reboot is required, it is possible for the OS to take a snapshot, similar to hibernation, of the current system state. This would allow it to be restarted and brought back to where you formerly were, documents and programs ready. As a system admin I often take for granted the ability to update nearly every component without ever requiring a hard reboot, which affects both server stability and user experience. Being able to also do Windows program updates and core component updates without having to reboot users would be a boon to both home and office.
