Re: [linux-5] Moving back to Windows from Linux?

ksplice looks really useful. But is it free for other Linux Distribution beside Ubuntu Desktop and Fedora? Or is it because it won't work on other distribution?

Quite concerned to know that Oracle has brought over this company as well. Oracle has been buying over many open source companies such as OpenOffice, mySQL, JAVA, VirtualBox etc.

There's no point. It just wouldn't be unbootable, that's all. :p

Debian and Ubuntu both boot into the newest kernel by default. What's the point
of installing a security update to the kernel if you're just going to boot into
the older kernel with the hole still in place?

That said, there's KSplice Uptrack[0] which allows for kernel updates without
the downtime related to rebooting.
