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."

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.

And what is crazier than yelling at people who do not call it GNU/Linux, comparing proprietary developers to violent criminals, refusing to surf the web with images and eating your own toejam in front of a group of students?
