We could ask them ;)

Nope. There are no defined standard industry terms yet. But a lot
of people use exactly those terms. A generalisation is still out-
standing. I read the SLB (Server Load Balancing) book published
by O'Reilly last week and I was really shocked by the author's
little knowledge about general load balancing terms and networking.
But he used a lot of the terms we use. Hi's book deals more with
the 4 biggest commercial LB's.

> I wonder where you can get the source code to their modified Linux?

You don't, only if they modified the kernel. Then they need to publish
the patches I think. That reminds me that I still have to do that for
our software :)
