LXer: Oracle Buys Ksplice for Rapid Linux Updates
Published at LXer:

Make no mistake about it, Oracle is serious about its Linux business. Today Oracle announced what I consider to be a significant addition to that business with the acquisition of Ksplice. Ksplice is this really neat tech that lets Linux admins 'hot patch' that is patch an in-use system without the need for a reboot. For a mission critical system, that's a big deal. It means that Oracle now potentially has a feature that other distros do not. No, this doesn't mean that Oracle is going to automatically block Ksplice from supporting other distros. BUT I do expect that it will be more optimized and integrated with Oracle Linux.

They could use it on their money making products.
