    2.6.14-ck4 (will change on next boot - if it ain't broken - to reboot, then it'll break )
    gentoo is toooooo slooooow for me, and I don't like what it does... (that is I like to maintin the kernel myself, but gentoo is a ***** about that - making, the provided file and a lot of cursing got portage to stop wuzzing about the kernel)

    -ck rules! one just gotta love it, eg it got the SCHED_BATCH and SCHED_ISO policies = real nice and realtime without monopol. Swap prefetching. No delay on swapping in/out stuff (unless it's the window you're working in that's the victim of swap). And various other interactivity improvements

    Hmm, I've been wanting to try a ck kernel. Is it noticeibly faster than the vanilla kernel?

    for me the (precieved) performance sky rocketed with -ck, I had al sorts of problems with skips in eg audio playback, but with -ck they virtually dissapeared.
    also, a fun side note, iirc Quake4's readme for linux recomends users to use -ck
