I have always managed -rt kernels in Ubuntu since Feisty Until
Maverick where I have gave up for personal reasons.

I don't know much about -preempt. A low latency kernel in server
context make little sense to me at least.

Few minutes ago I replied to Laurent about that.

Really I don't understand what you mean with "feel".
In any case I avoid to reply on this answer because I don't want start a flame.

The time of one-man-kernel-made is finished. So if people want the
real time kernel they should help.

I don't need help unless you want offer me a serious job. Real time
kernel need help.

All -rt kernels have always worked well on my old laptop also the
infamous Intrepid and Jaunty releases.
