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."

The article is about the vaporware and the never ending coming out "The Hurd". But you people go on a tangent and now are talking about all other types of OS. Stay focus boys!

By the way, the only reason that there is still work being done (albeit very little) on the Hurd is that crazyman Stallman does not have the guts to kill it. He is too jealous with Linux success and don't have the heart to do it hoping that maybe, somehow, one day they will finish the Hurd and he will try to push it down people's throat as a Linux replacement.

One last thing, if you call Linux, GNU/Linux, you have bought into Stallman craziness too and drank all the cool aid!
