That is, at the very least, a very misleading statement.  If not plain untrue. 
While it is correct that mythbackend does not log per se, one look at the 
included runlevel start script will confirm that mythbackend WILL log :

  daemon --user ${MBE_USER} ${MBE_LOCATION}${MBE_PROG} -d -l ${MBE_LOGFILE}

So unless you disable this logging by altering the default included start 
script, mythbackend will log everything, despite what you're saying.


Linux: Because rebooting is for adding hardware.
