Linux One of the problem with operating system updates is that you often need to reboot the system. While this is nothing but a minor nuisance for us desktop users, it's a bigger problem when it comes to servers. Ksplice is a technology that allows Linux kernel patches to be applied without actually restarting the kernel.

It's a very good news in the server world or with user who hate reboot like me ;)

let's hope we'll get there on windows too, eventually. (vista had gone a long way, but some things are still lacking) Now the only reason I reboot my vista box is on patch day or when I plug my projector/2nd screen again (nvidia drivers don't recognize what's connected to the 2nd dvi slot without rebooting)
