Response to: Tweaking kernel

Some people may wonder why one would want to replace the mach kernel.
I for one want to run CNC software on my Mac that requires RTAI, a realtime modification that requires intercepting interrupts before they are handled by the kernel. There is currently no patch to the MACH kernel to support this realtime software.
