I guess the Linux Kernel is pretty much the same with the vanilla
kernel. The reason it might offer better performance does most likely
not come from the kernel, but because in such a small system less
services are running, which might eat less CPU time.

Will performance be better?

Depends on what you mean with performance.

If you apply Xenomai/RTAI to a vanilla Linux kernel throughput and
number crunching (performance) will get worse and determinism will get

Real-time is not about "performance" (speed, throughput), but about
determinism and those are conflicting requirements.

You can have a look at an article of mine for a more detailed
explanation of what I mean:
