It is a surprise, because hardly any software on OS X forces a restart. 
  System updates including QT) and some badly written Epson drivers are 
about it, even Photoshop or Macromedia Studio don't force restarts.  If 
you are used to having a system that hasn't been booted for a month 
then a software installation that forces a restart just irritates.
