Hello I was think about installing a studio distro when I came foud 64 studio. I would just like to know What is the realtime or rt kernel and how is that better than the regular linux kernel? The website mentions that 64studio is debian and ubuntu compatible what does that mean? and would I be able to do a triboot system with winXP, ubuntum adn 64 bit studio? I know that hardrives are limited to 4 partitions under window so what i have add a swap partion for the 3rd 64studio partition? thanks

Realtime kernel gives high priority with time dependency to audio threads. This means that it will temporarily stop another running thread if a audio thread needs to be executed now. It has as a result a system that has very low latency capabilities, and very high audio reliability.

64 Studio is based on Debian Etch at the moment, with an "extreme" testing based on Debian Lenny.

The thing you saw with Ubuntu, it that the company 64Studio.com also creates customised distributions for specialised applications, and this could also be based of Ubuntu.

One of out latest users Actually installed Windows, Ubuntu AND 64 Studio on a single hard drive.
