-  * [[http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/ck/patches/2.6/|-ck patch set]] +  * [[http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/ck/patches/2.6/|-ck patch set]] - Con Kolivas' patch set, including BFS CPU sheduler, VM tweaks, etc for responsiveness 
-  * [[http://pf-kernel.org.ua/|-pf patch set]] +  * [[http://pf.natalenko.name/|-pf patch set]] - A combination of CK, BFQ I/O scheduler, and TuxOnIce (enhanced/faster suspend mode for Linux) 
-  * [[http://zen-kernel.org/|-zen patch set]]+  * [[http://zen-kernel.org/|-zen patch set]] - A combination of CK, BFQ, and many more random patches.  Not so much a "patch set" as a whole kernel.
