I've been a happy user of this kind of functionality
in Solaris 9 and 10 (before that it was pretty primitive).
I originally used for production machines, where a
guarantee of a certain amount of CPU to a bunch of
processes allows for eevrything from consolidation
to having the CPU available for root to use to kill
a runaway process.
However, I now run it on my laptop, and shove
background proceses into a different scheduling
group so they don't interfere with anything in
the foreground. Think of this as bg and nice
done right (;-))
