i have been running 2.5 since patchlevel 68, and it has been working 
great for me. i have made no comparative measurements with 2.4+lowlat, 
but it "feels" good and is very stable - even most of linus' bitkeeper 
snapshots have been ok.
disclaimer: mine is a scsi-only system...

i'd encourage people to try 2.5 to iron out audio-specific problems 
before we go into 2.6-test and the developers get nervous...
