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."

Very true. Having actually worked on VMS it does make me feel some affinity toward NT an NTFS... tho' I think RMS over Files-11 blew NTFS away. It was so nice to work with. Just as DCL blows DOS CMD away. In fact just about everything to do with VMS and the layered services and apps blew Windows away. ;) (I am a little biased in that regard).

And also as the poster below you mentioned... the relationship of Mac OS to BeOS, ditto. BeOS was so much better than Mac OS at the time... (opinion)
