yes but then in download links you can find only Fedora and Ubuntu.
Also if you select "trial ksplice" only these two distributions ...
while before you could try RH EL and CentOS too and evaluate the
product before buy.
In fact I tried it when there was a serious bug in kernel with root
privileges escalation (CVE-2010-3081) and an open exploit
and verified its goodness.
So +1 for me
