How to restart only the graphical side of OS X
Authored by: xanadu420 on Dec 05, '07 08:46:23AM
If I'm not mistaken
sudo killall -1 WindowServer
is the same as
sudo killall -HUP WindowServer
and is two keystrokes shorter :-)

Yeah, but I find that HUP (= Hang UP) is much easier to understand and remember than some arbitrary number :). Having said that, if you know (and can remember) all the signal numbers then well done!
