I've realized that the nice(1) code hasn't been modified for a long time
(last code change seems from 4 years ago according the sources).
¿Is the nice(1) behaviour the expected? I mean, ¿Has been the ULE
scheduler adapted to nice(1) command or not?
nice(1) is a very old command based on old concepts and created in times
when SMP didn't exist. So ¿it works correctly when a modern an
re-designed scheduler as ULE is used?
Maybe I have to read again this paper:
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that
brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass
over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner
eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only
I will remain.
Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear.
