OSNews, Generic OSes Some weeks after Neal Walfield implemented POSIX semaphores for libpthread, Marcus Brinkmann has now implemented SysV shared memory for the GNU Hurd in glibc, based on some earlier work done by Neal. This was probably the last commonly used POSIX feature missing in the Hurd, and having shared memory available will make several programs work much better.

Sorry that should have said 1990. GNU was started in '85. The point still remains that the Hurd predates Linux's existence.
