Abstract
Based on lessons learned in developing and maintaining LITMUS RT , arguments in favor of an intensified collab­
oration between the academic and the open­source real­time communities are presented, and several ways in which
ongoing efforts in these two communities may benefit each other are outlined. Some (unfortunately) commonly­
encountered sources of friction and mutual misconceptions, which result from differing backgrounds and objectives
in these two communities, are exposed, with the goal of finding common ground. Further, a ``wish list'' is presented of
possible additions and changes to PREEMPT­RT that would enhance Linux's viability as the ``platform of choice'' for
real­time­systems research. These improvements are substantiated by examining EDF­HSB, a candidate algorithm
