Does Linux Preemption Matter?

Question

Hi - I was thinking of using Ubuntu Server version for my motion machine. The specs for the server edition say that preemption is turned-off. Does this make a difference in motion performance. Is it better to have preemption on or off?


Environment

Motion version: 3.2.11
ffmpeg version:  
Libraries: ffmpeg, mysql, postgresql
Server OS: Ubuntu 8.10 Server
