I know Arch gives the PREEMPT kernel by default and OpenSUSE offers the "desktop" kernel which has PREEMPT enabled.
Apparently, this kernel package is new in Debian Testing (Wheezy). Could this be used as a better-performance alternative to the stock Debian kernel and a better-supported alternative to the Liquorix kernel?
