SuSE, openSUSE Novell today announced the availability of SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10, "the only open source, enterprise-class real-time operating system available in the market today". Novell says: "Enhancements to SUSE Linux Enterprise Real Time 10 include the latest enterprise-hardened open source technologies that reduce system latency or delay and improve predictability, such as CPU shielding, priority inheritance, sleeping spinlocks, interrupt threads, high-resolution timers and the latest OpenFabrics Enterprise Distribution for commodity high-speed interconnects, OFED 1.2.5. As a result, customers gain time advantage over competitors"

Ingo Molnar (Redhat Employee) is #1 writer of the -rt kernel series and all of the RealTime kernel patches. He also happens to be the guy who wrote the latest Linux scheduler, CFS. Because of that, Redhat's realtime product will likely blow the pants of of Novell's.

?

Stuff will get merged upstream and is then available to all distributions. If Red Hat decides to ship a RT distributions it will be the same technology as in Suse.
