Difference between init 6 and reboot - Unix commands?

Always perform init 6.

init 6 performs reboot of machine in an orderly manner and in a clean way. It changes the runlevel of “svc.startd” daemon to execute rc0 kill scripts.

reboot performs very very quick reboot. It does not execute rc0 kill scripts. It just unmounts filesystem and restarts the system.

While doing a live-upgrade of OS & any patch-updates etc. only init 6 is strongly recommended.

Who ever writes Inappropriate/Vulgar comments to context, generally want to be anonymous …So I hope U r not the one like that?
For lazy logs u can at least use Name/URL option which don’t even require any sign-in, good thing is that it can accept your lovely nick name also and URL is not mandatory too.
Thanks for your patience
