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."

While you won't 'see' this kind of research in a commercial OS, it would be naive to assume it isn't happening.

Exactly. This kind of research is going on. What you won't see in a commercial OS is a release that includes code that is 6 hours old and has even less hours of testing. You wouldn't even see that in a beta release of a commercial OS.
