Think of a small switch somewhere running linux. An embedded version of linux perhaps. Now imagine it routes telephone calls, and is placed in a desert, 100 kilometers from anywhere, 10,000 kilometers from where it was developed. Now imagine it needs a new patch _without_ taking down 10,000 subscribers' service. Would be nice to have a thing like Ksplice, no?
