Music & Linux--Was question about Gnopernicus

Main thing I've noticed about the folks on CCRMA is that they strip
their boxes down. For example, they'll turn networking off and unload
those drivers if they've even got them installed in the first place when
doing some serious music crunching. There's a lot of documentation about
low latency, pre-emption, and disk tuning on the CCRMA site.

Bottom line seems to be that Linux needs to be coaxed into leaving pipes
in place.
