    Your aging, security-hole-ridden kernel and low-level user-space would probably appreciate it if you did a yum/apt-get upgrade and rebooted.

    It's like those fools who brag about how their "not IIS" webserver hasn't been restarted in two years. 15 seconds at apache.org, php.net, etc. gives you a laundry list of remote holes to gleefully exploit, if you're the mischievous type.

    Ksplice does all of that work without forcing a reboot.

    The article, throughout being rather long and consiting mostly of quotes, doesn't cover the contents of mjg59's blog post to the slightest degree. Michael please try to understand the matter you are posting about, before writing the article.
