"Terra Soft Solutions and FSMLabs have announced that RTLinux for PowerPC will be included in the next release of Terra Soft's Black Lab Linux distribution, and also in future releases of Champion Server. RTLinux adds hard realtime capabilities to Linux, allowing Linux to reliably control machines, robots, data acquisition devices, telecommunications switches, and other systems having precise timing constraints."

"RTLinux on the PowerPC offers realtime interrupt handlers with worst case latencies under 14 microseconds and precise periodic thread scheduling. RTLinux follows the POSIX 1003.13 PSE51 profile: it is a small, highly optimized, realtime kernel where the POSIX threads and signals API's available to support hard realtime applications running close to the bare machine."
