Try 2.5.75. I just went from 2.5.73 to 2.5.75 and was -totally- amazed by the difference. I had a ton of broken modules before, all of them compiled flawlessly. I couldn't insert any modules before (and yes, I had the correct mod tools) because dependencies couldn't be resolved (i presume because half my modules wouldn't compile) .. they all compile, and insert. it's beautiful. it's like butta.
Also, my memory usage on startup went from like 65MB to 20MB, and after loading X (with fvwm2) I still have about 70MB free on a 128MB system.
The response time is INCREDIBLE compared to 2.4 and previous 2.5 series.
Also, if you're running Debian, make sure that your X package is NOT set to nice the Xserver by -10. That improved response time in 2.4 and previous, but is actually a bad thing for the improved task schedulers in 2.5.
