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."

RE[2]: Status of Hurd?

Have you recently downloaded a copy? Because it's not note worthy any more it seems.

I did download it some time ago, and it wasn't bad. When I say "noteworthy" about a Hurd based distro, what I mean is that it boots and is somewhat useable for doing simple stuff without crashing.
