this largely depends on your sound card, linux is able to get increadably
low latencies (under 1ms in the kernel) and is of course much more
stable.  Miller has added some support ASIO drivers in .35 which means, if
your soundcard _has_ ASIO drivers, pretty darned low latencies for windows
as well.
