So PIC is not suitable for Ubuntu Studio.. I read in the wikipedia that it
is not suitable for pre-emptive multitasking, wow it took them this long to
get something the Amiga's had back in the 80s (??).  APIC seems to be the
better choice. It says it supports more hardware interrupts and more
scheduling policies.

I wonder if my Dimension 9150 has APIC.. I guess it should it has a dual
core processor on it..
