As you can see on my page, I indeed measured less than 1ms latency on
Linux under load with kernel more than a year old. These things have
gotten much better recently and with a premptible kernel you should be
able to get 1ms easily. Going below 0.5ms without using a realtime OS (ie
a realtime kernel, under linux) is really pushing it.
