By popular request, Con Kolivas has backported Ingo Molnar's earlier interactivity improvements [story] to
the 2.4.20 stable kernel. The interactivity patch was first added as an enhancment to Con's desktop oriented patchset [story] in 2.4.20-ck4. I
immediately downloaded the patch myself and gave it a try, disappointed to discover it was less responsive than Con's plain -ck4 patchset.
