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.

...So long as you keep the copyright and license notices intact, you can do whatever you want with the source.

What do you mean with this? If I close the source and further develop into another direction - would this not break the license?

So long as you leave the copyright notice and license intact, then, no it doesn't break the license.

You can close the source, modify it as you see fit, release binaries, even sell it.
