I only ask this, because I was looking up stuff about real-time kernels since there are some selections in the Manjaro Settings Manager application and I see some kernels labelled with
rt (and showing as real-time, specifically) only to find this commentary from Ubuntu Studio team about their use.
A real juicy statement from that page reads as follows.
All it would take is one malicious process to execute and take advantage of the real-time code to completely lock-out a user from their machine, turning that machine into part of a botnet or other malicious purpose. Real-Time processes have the potential to completely take-over a machine. This is the number one reason Ubuntu does not carry a Real-Time kernel.
So, why is this a user-accessible option if any of this is true?
