Not so you'd notice them much actually. I'm currently using 2.4.21 and
I haven't noticed much of a difference. The general impression overall
that it is faster, but it still suffers when loaded.

The new scheduler is the much heard of `real-time' scheduler and from
what I've heard is supposed to be the "cat's meow." I've attempted to
install several 2.5.xx kernels, the latest being 2.5.73. They compile
alright, but I have yet to get one to run successfully. It seems to
load alright, but because all the old boot-up messages have been
removed, I can't tell where it hangs up. I know that it runs at all
because of disk activity for about a minute, but then nothing. No
screen messages appear and the keyboard is locked. I've never really
had the time to go deeper into it, just running it out of curiosity.
Fashion is for people who have no style.
There are three crimes which deserves the death penalty:
conformity, political correctness, and smoking.
