Yes. However, I understand that for time-critical but not
nanosecond-critical applications (such as MIDI music or real-time video
processing) the OS can offer a middle way, usually in a 'media' library,
that guarantees sub-thread-slice accuracy at the cost of some extra
complication. Sort of an "almost real-time".
(I'm not an expert here, so the above statement may be inaccurate)
