I thought RTLinux's approach fixed the standard Linux
kernel weaknesses by treating it as a low priority task
running ontop of a hard real-time kernel. Or is there
something else going on?

OK, so Linux has problems, that's no surprise.  But it's overall a good
system, and competing with it would be a huge challenge.

What if someone (yeah, I know, I should do it myself) were to fix a
problem by replacing a _piece_ of Linux with a much superior equivalent
written in Ada?
