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."

Why use a hybrid kernel when there is a true microkernel?

This is a good question, and I think it is the source (heh) of a lot of confusion here and on many other sites. I think there may be some practical reasons to use a 'hybrid microkernel'. But without being able to cite actual kernel source code, most discussions are hand waving, and ego arguments.
