OSNews, Generic OSes The Hurd is still doing its thing. "Jeremie Koenig started working on his Google Summer of Code project: bringing not only Java to the Hurd, but also fixing or adding missing parts in the Hurd's components along the way. For example, he already contributed a set of signal handling improvements. Samuel Thibault created the first Debian GNU/Hurd CD set with a graphical installer. You can dowload it at the usual place for Debian CD images."

BitC isn't really about programming hardware in a higher level language.

It is about programming an OS in a language that is safe.
while Guido might fly in an all python airplane[1]
I wouldn't.

BitC really probably falls as far from python on the spectrum of languages as any 2 languages could.
