Linux Kernel 2.6.0-test8 Released

LinuxGeek8 Re:Good stuff (277 comments)

I'm running test7 now, and I share that experience. I did use the low-latency and preemptive patches on 2.4 a few times, but I didn't notice any real difference then. With 2.6 I do.
I do multitask a lot, on not a too fast machine (dual celeren 466 with 256 Mb ram) and it feels more responsive when switching tasks, and simply when using desktop software. And yes, that includes the browser!
