Linux During the roundtable discussion at LinuxCon this year, Linus Torvalds made some pretty harsh remarks about the current state of the Linux kernel, calling it "huge and bloated", and that there is no plan in sight to solve the problem. At the same time, he also explained that he is very happy with the current development process of the kernel, and that his job has become much easier.

scheduler was only an example. I don't think that scheduler only is responsible for the problem.
Kernel is trying to please all possible users, desktop server and so on. This does not work very well.

and yes, it (cpu scheduler) does have a lot to do with (also desktop) performance. If you would check recent lkml discussions, you would clearly see that.
