KSplice, Inc has agreed to be purchased by Oracle according to a news fact over on Market Watch. While we at linuxinstall.net aren't sure that not booting for updates is a great idea the concept was cool. Since Oracle seems to hate leaving things in the open after they buy them we can only assume that this technology will also be closed up. Don't get us wrong we are happy they entered the market to scratch an inch. They were doing very interesting research and the team at Ksplice, Inc. deserve what ever pay check they recieved.
