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 shouldn't feed the troll but I will say the facts anyway.

Stallman can't kill Hurd, it is a free software project and it has life of its own. FSF has long ago stoped hiring hackers to work on Hurd, it is entirely hobbist project now. Last FSF-paid Hurd hacker was Roland McGrath who moved to work for Red Hat in 2002 (he works on glibc now).So, Stallman have done his part on killing Hurd by not spending FSF money on it! Are you more happy with Stallman now? Do you still think he is crazy?

Why am I even asking, you delusional RMS-haters wouldn't rest until see the guy dead. And then you would attack him because he died.

And one last thing: I will call the thing GNU/Linux just because I don't want buy into crazy RMS-haters' craziness. You have bought into someone else's craziness which is way more dangerous than RMS's.
