Hello Alessio,

I only use the -rt kernel, both at home and at work (we have a 
multimedia room with some Ubuntu machines). I've actually never seen a 
-realtime kernel, what's the difference from -rt? -lowlatency doesn't 
cut it for me, like I said, I need the tasklet API the -rt kernel 
provides so I can use rtirq.
Concerning support, it would be best if there were kernels for every 
release simply because it would be a bummer if people would move away 
from Ubuntu because of this.
