GNU, GPL, Open Source "So what is the state of the Hurd? Is it vaporware, like Duke Nukem Forever? Fortunately not: the code exists, there is still work going on (for instance as part of Google Summer of Code), and there are even some relatively functional Hurd distributions. Let's look first at the code and the current architecture, and then at the Hurd distributions."

I think that GNU Hurd will replace anyway in time SkyOS (as vaporwarre) and at least regarding Hurd is that is a released kernel. Anyone whom understands it will share it's ideas and will make a good base for future development of other OSS kernels (including Linux)
