“In the January/February 2002 issue of Embedded Linux Journal, we examined the fundamental issues of real time with Linux. In this article we examine efforts to bring real-time capabilities to applications by making improvements to the Linux kernel. To date, the majority of this work has been to make the kernel more responsive–to reduce latency by reducing the preemption latency, which can be quite long in Linux.” Kevin Dankwardt
