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.

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.

??... ;) (emphasis mine)

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.

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 ;) )
