Author: JT Smith

The delay between the generation of a computer event and its

interactive game and you turn a steering wheel, you expect the vehicle
on the screen to turn instantly. When you're using a MIDI keyboard

An Oreillynet.com article focuses on reducing Linux response times, inlcuding a number of adjustments that will create
near-instantaneous response times on Linux systems.
