"The 2.6 process scheduler intentionally dynamically modifies the priority of processes to better optimize the system for I/O and interactive use. This is done via an "interactivity estimator" that gives a small priority bonus to I/O-bound processes and a small priority punishment to CPU-bound processes. Processes can receive as much as ±5 nice levels in either direction from their given static priority."
