GNU, GPL, Open Source The HURD was meant to be the true kernel at the heart of the GNU operating system. The promise behind the HURD was revolutionary -- a set of daemons on top of a microkernel that was intended to surpass the performance of the monolithic kernels of traditional Unix systems and in doing so, give greater security, freedom and flexibility to the users -- but it has yet to come down to earth.

In reference to the GNU-Hurd, I'm saying the Hurd people have lost sight of what's important and will never be able to find the Holy Grail, a usable release of the Hurd kernel. Just a metaphor. A perfect kernel will never exist probably.
