Although Real Time Linux isn't necessarily new, most solutions use a RTOS
kernel which runs the Linux kernel as a low-priority thread and having some
intercommunications between it and Linux.
But when I read about the RT-PREEMPT patch I got pretty excited because it
looks like it allows a vanilla Linux kernel to run Linux programs with
real-time scheduling without the "programming-for-two-OS'es" paradigm. Linux
video codecs can decode and display video fluently on even a low-horsepower
system without dropping any frames.
Has anyone here used it already and how usefull is it?
