Actually, this a terrible lesson in a non-windows environment. There are
cases when reboots are necessary (kernel related for the most part).  In
my experience rebooting tends to mask the real issue. If it happens
again you haven't learned how to deal with it outside of rebooting.

In most server environments, uptime is everything. It is amazing how
users notice the web server or mail server being down for 5 minutes. It
can be frustrating, but there is almost always another solution when
running linux[1]. It is worth it to try for that rather than reboot.

That's my two cents at least.
