Question

Is canonical live patch worth installing in a droplet with lowest resources?

I was just wondering about the message when I log into the remote server

 * Canonical Livepatch is available for installation.
   - Reduce system reboots and improve kernel security. Activate at:
     https://ubuntu.com/livepatch

The terms say that one can have 3 machines with this live patch so I was wondering if it is worth doing.

Perhaps someone else has this installed and can describe his/her experience? Pros/Cons? I would appreciate it very much.

Thanks for your time, and thanks for reading!
