    This fragmentation is bad for Linux.

    Oracle is a horrible company. They'll make it so you can only use this technology on Oracle's Copy Cat Linux and then sue anyone who tries to create a GPL licensed project that does similar things.
    KSplice is already GPL.

    Anyway, I dont think this is a too much of a problem. Oracle does lots of open source, for instance, Oracle develops BTRFS which many of you enjoy. I dont think there is any risk of Oracle shutting down BTRFS? And Oracle OpenOffice is now driven totally by the community. etc etc
