10.7: Restart Mission Control
Authored by: simplebeep on Nov 15, '11 02:06:28PM

I agree, and I, for one, do prefer the osascript method. It's "cleaner," and we should all strive to keep our systems clean.

However, the killall method is more concise and requires no precise use of quotation marks (so it's easier for those new to the Terminal), and I've never heard of killall doing the Dock any harm.

It makes me wonder if the Dock application implements Sudden Termination---if so, using killall would actually be the preferred method for restarting it.
