Subject: Latency results with 2.6.10 - looks good

After testing JACK with vanilla 2.6.10, it appears that the scheduling latency of 2.6.10 is a vast improvement over previous kernel releases. JACK seems to be usable with a period of 32 and 64 frames, I cannot produce xruns by moving the mouse or any amount of display or disk activity. Previous kernel releases were somewhat worse than Windows XP in this area, 2.6.10 is definitely better, maybe as good as OSX.
So, it appears that all of the latency fixes going upstream from Ingo and others have really made a difference. More testing is needed but it looks like we may finally have a kernel that's usable (and in fact quite good) out of the box for low latency audio. Good work!
Y esto es con un 2.6.10 normal, sin los parches de RT de ingo & cia, y aun tendrá que mejorar para futuras versiones, supongo
