Re: How are folks using the PREEMPT option in the 2.6 kernel?

I noticed that you were involved in this thread so I
won't quote from there:


I have turned it on to play with.... and although I
have been told it "slows" the system, to me -- the
user experience (desktop) seems to be slightly better
(I have not done timing comparisons -- so it is only
an "observation" without reference)

It may slow the system, and would be worthless to a
server, I do think there is some usefulness for
desktop type environments -- sound - mouse.  

I also read a review of the upcoming fedora core 2 in
a "trade magazine" (I am not going to try and find
it).... one of there main complaints was the
disappointment of it being switched off on the stock
kernel (non-developer type installations).  

I have had no problems with it.
