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."

Of course BeOS was better than System 7. Why else would Apple consider buying Be Corp.? They went with NeXT Software because JLG demanded more than Apple were willing to pay. (Although they ended up paying more than twice as much for NeXT.)


Probably a very fortunate turn of events for Apple. Quite apart from getting a good OS, they got Jobs back. Love him or hate him, the man has transformed Apple. He has added $200bn to the valuation of the company since he took over.
