Linux A new version of the real-time Linux scheduler called SCHED_DEADLINE has been released on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. For people who missed previous submissions, it consists of a new deadline-based CPU scheduler for the Linux kernel with bandwidth isolation (resource reservation) capabilities. It supports global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations. This new version takes into account previous comments/suggestions and is aligned to the latest mainline kernel. A video about SCHED_DEADLINE is also available on YouTube.

Perhaps Linux is badly written, complicated and certainly its coders aren't the most pleasant people, but it's hard to associate Linux with slowness (perhaps it is when run from a USB flash drive) or crashing.

Linux (the kernel) and GNU wonderland are, in my experience, just fine. The GUI stuff is often buggy and crashes, but it won't take down the system itself. A Linux server will go on and on for months and years.

If you experience crashes it's probably defective hardware or some rare buggy driver.
