Have you seen a benefit from preempt? And if so, what application and
how much? I may not be doing anything which benefits from preempt enough
to notice (news, mail and dns servers, desktops), but other than dns on
2.4 I haven't seen improvement.

enlightenmet, please?

Well, I am fairly new to Linux. Only since a month or so I am regurlarly using Linux and only since 2.6 kernel. I always used preempt and had no problems. The only problem I have, is with APIC. 2.6 is very smooth for me. I don't know whether it is because of preempt or not. I just was curious, why Craig didn't use it and whether the is a connection.
