 Realfeel Test of the Preemptible Kernel Patch

Linux Journal takes a look at the Preemptible Kernel Patch.

"Linux was originally written as a general-purpose operating system without any consideration for real-time applications. Recently Linux has become attractive to the real-time community due to its low cost and open standards. In order to make it more practical for the real-time community, patches have been written to affect such things as interrupt latency and context switch. These patches are public domain and are becoming part of the main Linux tree."
