If you read what the banker says: " for each thousandth of a second that its trading software can act faster than competitors' software, the company would see $100 million a year in new revenue." It seems to me that they are really misunderstanding the problem. What they need is a system that's fast most of the time, rather than one that meets an arbitary deadline all the time. In other words they need a fast system, not a realtime system. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
