Linux "In recent weeks and months there has been quite a bit of work towards improving the responsiveness of the Linux desktop with some very significant milestones building up recently and new patches continuing to come. This work is greatly improving the experience of the Linux desktop when the computer is withstanding a great deal of CPU load and memory strain. Fortunately, the exciting improvements are far from over. There is a new patch that has not yet been merged but has undergone a few revisions over the past several weeks and it is quite small - just over 200 lines of code - but it does wonders for the Linux desktop."

I agree that BeOS / Haiku was indeed able to do an awful lot of things at the same time, while still being responsive. Much better than Windows or Linux on the desktop.

But server-side... I would rather run Linux than Haiku for deamons ;-)

This patch tries to combine both benefits: a kernel usable for both server and desktop, even at the same time.

Just too bad that all those things were spinning teapots.
