Linux FailSafe is technically still quite advanced, but no longer
maintained or developed. Due to various reasons - mostly due to the
lay-off round at both SGI and SuSE in 2001 -, we could no longer keep
up. That has saddened me as the responsible project manager quite a bit,
but alas: I cannot recommend it at all for new deployments.
