Linux gets real (time) by default

TimeSys will be getting their real-time support in the 2.6.18 kernel source, so it will be real-time by default, from then on.

What this means in terms of Linux being able to Do Stuff without special downloads & patching first is very pleasing. Hopefully, more mainstream distributions will start bundling real-time support with their fundamental packaging, allowing J Random Linux Installer to set a system up (“out of the box”) for real-time applications much more easily than (s)he can today.
