Performance for _my_ averaged non-audio desktop usage isn't less good,

when using a vanilla or so called desktop optimized kernel, so I'm usually
using a self compiled kernel-rt. However, I'm seldom toying around with my
computer, so "averaged non-audio" does mean that I use mail clients,
browsers and GIMP, even for consuming multimedia, I seldom use the
computer.

But making the kernel-rt a default, would be as bad, as making flashy
animated 3D desktops a default, so IMO distros should stop this desktop
insanity, but keep non-rt-kernels, while providing a kernel-rt by the
repositories.
