OSNews, Generic OSes The Hurd is still doing its thing. "Jeremie Koenig started working on his Google Summer of Code project: bringing not only Java to the Hurd, but also fixing or adding missing parts in the Hurd's components along the way. For example, he already contributed a set of signal handling improvements. Samuel Thibault created the first Debian GNU/Hurd CD set with a graphical installer. You can dowload it at the usual place for Debian CD images."

Status of Hurd?

What is the status of the kernel itself? Are the devs still starting over constantly with a new microkernel or is Hurd becoming close to something we can call "stable"?

PS. http://www.archhurd.org/ is also a noteworthy Hurd distro.
