Kernel optimized for the desktop

This kernel is optimized for the desktop. It is configured for lower latency and has many of the features that aren't usually used on desktop machines disabled. This kernel supports up to 64GB of main memory. It requires Physical Addressing Extensions (PAE), which were introduced with the Pentium Pro processor. PAE is not only more physical address space but also important for the "no execute" feature which disables execution of code that is marked as non-executable. Therefore, the PAE kernel should be used on any systems that support it, regardless of the amount of main memory.
