everything is connected, reliability in the UI *depends* on conditional
reliability in the core/kernel

i agree totally with you, the desktop team can't fix this alone, this is
bigger than only desktop team or only kernel hackers..

true. it's difficult to get this one across to anybody, because nobody
really feels responsible.
If UI response gets improved on a UI level, I/O stutters will most likely
still occur, if I/O misbehaviour is fixed, UI response might still have its
problems and issues..

To reserve a legit amount of "power" for what i would call UI Reliability is
a joint venture for all of the desktop and its core, i don't think anybody
can go this one alone, we'd just end up in the same vicious circle of
performance issues again next cycle..
