LXer: Kernel space: The enterprise real-time feud

Published at LXer:

At the end of November, LWN posted a pointer to Novell's announcement for its SUSE Linux Enterprise Realtime offering. The resulting comments were surprisingly negative. Readers questioned the need for realtime response in "enterprise" settings. Anybody who is still wondering about the value of that product will be doubly confused now that Red Hat has announced a realtime distribution service of its own. It's not surprising that the two companies most interested in selling Linux-related services into the enterprise market have announced offerings within a week of each other. What is surprising is the amount of silly sniping which has come with these releases.

While the article is reporting cheap shots from PR types (who don't know the kernel from the cob), this is the line that caught my eye.
Until the process of getting the realtime patches into the mainline runs its course - something which could happen over the next year - anybody shipping realtime distributions will necessarily have to roll their own kernels.
A year from now, we'll all have realtime kernels ... That's great.
