The Scheduler Will Fitzgerald 11 Apr 2000 18:12 UTC

I'm curious why the scheduler wasn't made a data type, too, and, in
particular, why the scheduling algorithm isn't changeable.

Further (and relatedly), I'm curious why priority and quantum are
defined as the only thread-related data that affect the scheduling. If
the scheduling algorithm were separate, there might be other data it
would want to consider (e.g., deadlines).
