GNU, GPL, Open Source "So what is the state of the Hurd? Is it vaporware, like Duke Nukem Forever? Fortunately not: the code exists, there is still work going on (for instance as part of Google Summer of Code), and there are even some relatively functional Hurd distributions. Let's look first at the code and the current architecture, and then at the Hurd distributions."

SkyOS exists and run. development halted but "it works"

Well, yes, that's what people say.

and anyone can run it.


Not really, as there is no way of obtaining it. When you click "Get SkyOS" on the web site, you are sent to http://skyos.org/?q=node/4 where it says: "SkyOS is currently not available for download, for additional information please refer to this page."
