Linux Ingo Molnar released a new patchset titled the 'Modular Scheduler Core and Completely Fair Scheduler'. He explained, "this project is a complete rewrite of the Linux task scheduler. My goal is to address various feature requests and to fix deficiencies in the vanilla scheduler that were suggested/found in the past few years, both for desktop scheduling and for server scheduling workloads."

Im not sure if posting from a mailing list without explicit permission is ok. So I will simply say that RJop's post is a direct snipped of a LONG thread. Ingo and Linus have been going back and forth on this X renice issue. At this particular moment in time Ingo is basicly stating ...that I really do have a plan and just please check this out Linus... ( thats a very very very loose semi paraphrase not at all a quote ) he goes on to explain that everything in CFS is "Economy driven" every thing is held accountable ect. I wont try to loosely explain further at the moment. I will say that the information can be found on the Con Kolivas CK mailing list. So far both SD and CFS are looking pretty interesting Ingo is a pretty sharp programmer as most folks know. Con however is also pretty sharp and his SD scheduler is keeping Ingo somewhat on his toes! End result is that it dont matter which approach wins, we the people definitely will benefit largely as both are already in GOOD shape.
