    This looks very interesting. I need to read more into RTAI and friends
    when I get a chance. I just received the latest Linux Journal that has
    the article about the use of RTLinux with the control of magnetic
    bearings. I've just started reading it so I don't know all the details
    yet but it still looks very promising.

    I don't think the adding of preempt-RT patch to the kernel will hurt
    anything. In fact I think it may even help out the RTAI and friends.
    Anyway, as it has been stated, this discussion has started too early.
    (Thanks Daniel ;-)
