Depends on the platform:

include/asm-m68k/param.h:# define HZ            100             /* Internal kernel timer frequency */

No, we don't want to switch to 1000 (except maybe for fast ColdFire :-)
Hmm, tickless would be even nicer...

when I'm talking to journalists I just say "programmer" or something like that.
