Yesterday we also told you about the patches being merged for the Linux 2.6.23 kernel, and now Ingo Molnar's Completely Fair Scheduler has been merged into Linux in time for the 2.6.23 kernel. The Completely Fair Scheduler has been described as modeling an "ideal, precise multi-tasking CPU on real hardware." The new scheduler replaces the O(1) scheduler that has been in the Linux kernel since 2002. Additional information is available at Kernel Trap.
