Don't make things up. The CFS scheduler is quite good and has no problems with interactivity on the desktop.

No, he is right. Compiling is OK, but just try to uncompress an 1G rar file or copy some files in the background and the GUI will come to a crawl. Not just the GUI, actually: CLI programs like vim are affected too. CFS is horrible for the desktop.

And I experience this both on my Core2Duo home computer and at my workplace on an 8-CPU beast, so the problem is definitely there.
