Of course I'd prefer realtime/rt, however the truth of the matter is that keeping up with patches, and keeping the kernel versions in sync for any one Ubuntu release is very difficult. For this reason, I'd favour the lowlatency kernel, as it would be easier to maintain, given its only configuration changes, and would be easier to get into Ubuntu, and maintain it, keeping in sync with the Ubuntu release kernel version.

I'm happy to help maintain the low latency kernel, i.e using the Ubuntu release kernel git tree as a base, and making our own changes on top, and rebasing on the Ubuntu kernel for fixes. Can help get it into universe, and maintain it there.

With the low latency kernel, I would be happy to support it for every Ubuntu release where it is in the archive.
