Great!

This is certainly great news for Debian users, it has been a long wait. I sincerely hope this Kernel project can avoid following the trends into the poor performance wastelands that plagued 2.6.26 - 2.6.28. I have built at least 5 customized Vanilla-rt Kernels throughout the 2.6.28 - 2.6.29 cycle and with my M-Audio 1010LT there were major differences in performance in each Kernel. With the latest advancements -rt is no longer even a necessity with some hardware so I wish the developer the best...Consistent performance with the -rt patch is extremely difficult to maintain across such varied hardware. It will be a challenge to know when to hold a version and when to to embrace a new one. That being said it is still an exciting development!
