    Maybe you'd be better off if you didn't spend so much time looking at your
    watch.

    That, loosely speaking, is the rationale behind a significant change at the
    heart of Linux that programmers hope will make the open-source operating
    system more efficient. New versions of the operating system are being
    endowed with a "tickless" kernel that forsakes traditional computer
    time-keeping in an effort to keep the processor in a somnolent, low-power
    state.
