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."

It's GNU HURD, what difference would 9 months make?

For the last time, my point was ***I COULD NOT DOWNLOAD THAT ISO***!!

9 months in itself wouldn't have bothered me because a simple 'pacman -Suy' would have fixed any problems there (I regularly use "out of date" Arch install CDs for the same reason).

However if you can't even download the aforementioned ISO then you're dead before you've even started!

Sorry if I sound ratty, but I've said this 3 times now and people are still missing the point.

I just downloaded the image in less than 10 minutes. I fail to see the problem.

Well would you mind sharing the URL then (as I did ask when suggesting others might find a working mirror that I missed)?
