"Ksplice[1], the company based on the MIT Ksplice project[2], is now
offering its 'never reboot' service for Red Hat, Debian, and other
Linux distros. You subscribe and get real-time kernel security updates
that apply in-memory instead of rebooting. Last summer we discussed
the free service for Ubuntu[3]. Cool tech, but will people really pay
$4 a month[4] for this?"
