Low-Jitter Linuks / openSUSE / Os 8?

I tested open source to see what quality it had.

And I did the low-jitter kernel that was featured back in 2012 on Phoroniks. One needs to measure actual framejitter here though, to understand it.

It did Doom 3, which I used for testing, in 72.7 FPS (low psychovisual noise refresh rate). Which John Carmack said was a difficult case, and that 30 FPS was regular on this. Reprioritizing (renicing) Eks was also needed for this. This was much better than windows at the time.

And tried realtime threads with audio, that made 0.33ms audio latency possible. In comparison Windows on my current computer has 10ms latency(!). I also had a Mac Mini that could do 1ms latency.

In these days the Linuks kernel has gotten many more realtime components. And has the EEVDF scheduler coming. It all seems very optimal if one likes low-jitter computing. (No interruption, but smooth flow of operation).

From what I understand one can prioritize interrputs aswell with that, getting even better results.

For a desktop PC, one may argue that 200µS jitter, is close to optimal.

Enthusiasts may want to try openSUSE. The lizardlicking icon is a bit odd though. So atleast minus the lizard for my part.

And setting a direction for what I have just called Os 8. And tightening it up with a low jitter kernel. I would also use the Oswald Google Font here (as on this site). And used latin-c script. And unified open source, demoscene, social networking, etc. Really all culture from this point of view, as a social O S, with file publishing and file commentary, integrated with online payment methods. 8 also being a symbol of TAZin, from the kuranic initials, which could be a good follow up to Zin, as much used in the electronics industry.
