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.

I'm a quite able Linux user and I have to fiddle around with Windows XP/7 on a regular basis while I personally use OS X.

Sadly I have reached a stage in my life where I don't have the time or motivation to check out Linux distributions, testdrive different GUIs or build my own PC. There was a time when I did this and I'm happy it's over.

Linux desktops are fast, even heavy ones like KDE, but my gripe is with the application software. IMO it's just not good, certainly when compared to Windows and OS X counterparts. There is some good software, but in few numbers.

When I use Linux I prefer CLI only. That's fun to use and all the CLI commands and programs are very useful, powerful and just work.

For the usual stuff that a typical user likely needs, the software is fine I'd say. Browsers, Open/Libre Office, bittorrent clients, image viewers/organisers are perfectly OK, plus throw in some media player and IM - those last two tend to be somewhat better actually: multi-communicators and plays-everything seem to be more the rule on Linux than on Windows & OSX.

(sorry for a late reply, again ...I think I went to sleep when I had this reply window opened ;) )
