Non preemptible kernels are suited for servers
Voluntary preempt. kernels for desktops
Full preempt kernels for low latency desktops.

It's just a matter of how many people are going to use the
distribution and with what purpose . I guess that a Red Hat Advanced
Server delivers a non preempt. kernel.


Thanks for the reply!

So, what is the difference between "voluntary preemtible" kernels und "preemtible" kernels (what is a low latency desktop?). Wwho is doing what voluntarily here?

Would it be worth to recompile the kernel with "preemptible kernel" enabled, as I'm using my linux installation on a desktop machine? Or is the gain only measurable but not noticeable?

Thanks and greets

I mean "Many distributors did not use...", of course!
