    Well, I just put my system under severe natural load using
    2.6.0-test2-mm1 and I must say that my system remained as responsive
    as one could expect. I have a PentiumIII 500Mhz with 192 Mb RAM.

    Here's what load was like:
    1) Compiling 2.6.0-test2-mm1-O11.1int :)
    2) updating spamassassin bayesian filters (This mainly causes heavy
    disk i/o, the CPU usage is not so high)
    3) procmail filtering ~40 emails simultaneously.
    4) playing ogg's in xmms
    5) switching between viewing pdf's and web-browsing

    Window switching remained pretty snappy and there was one skip in
    the music . The pdf's scrolled at a decent speed too.

    All in all I would say that I really cannot expect anything more in
    terms of responsiveness from my hardware. IMO, there is a limit to the
    magic a good scheduler can do on limited hardware resources.

    The scheduler has certainly come a long way since 2.6.0-test1
    ( plus all subsequent patches and versions). Great work.
