    Although, truth be told, I'm not so sure why I need the low-latency either. My first PC ran MS-DOS and only later it got Windows 3.1/3.11. To me the current DEs are pretty nifty as they are.
    With that mind - yes, every DE - even windows Vista/8 are nifty

    As for the mix, I feel you still want to be able to get some throughput vs latency (I am happy to be wrong though) - But, lower latency for the right processes, not everything might be the key.
