Linux kernel gains new real-time support

Linux kernel gains new real-time support:

"The 2.6.18 release includes real-time technology that will save individual kernel developers from having to maintain separate real-time kernel trees, according to TimeSys. Additionally, embedded Linux developers or normal desktop users wishing to build kernels capable of achieving millisecond-level real-time responsiveness will no longer have to apply patches."

This should be very handy/useful for many people. I personally see the value in audio recording, when response time is extremely important. While it is not incredibly difficult to apply the patches to get real-time support, this step will make it much more useful for people that are new to Linux.
