Well, I did some experimenting today and maybe I do not have the
settings all perfected.  Which is likely since I do not really know what
each one does.  But to compare apples with apples I ran jackd with
Ardour with the same simple project.  In both cases; 2.6.32-25-preempt &
2.6.31-11-rt Ubuntu SMP  x86_64 GNU/Linux were worse at creating xruns
than the generic kernel.  Now I *know* this is nonsensical however I do
not know of another way to test to see which kernel I should be booting.

I also need the machine for email and web browsing. There seemed to be
very little if any performance differences in those categories between
the various kernels.  But this is subjective and not verified in any
quantitative manner.
