Running Ubuntu 12.04 With The Liquorix Kernel
Written by Michael Larabel in Software on 27 March 2012. Page 5 of 5. 12 Comments

The Interbench results -- a benchmark written by Con Kolivas for testing the system's interactivity when working on the kernel -- went from being unnoticeable (no reported latency) to slightly ahead of the generic Linux kernel. The Liquorix kernel is used the BFS scheduler.

Meanwhile, the Apache web-server performance was slower with the Liquorix kernel than what Canonical is set to offer as the stock kernel for Ubuntu 12.04 based upon Linux 3.2.
