GNU, GPL, Open Source

It is the GNU project's 30th birthday, and we are pleased to announce version 0.5 of the GNU Hurd.

The GNU Hurd is the GNU project's replacement for the Unix kernel. It is a collection of servers that run on the Mach microkernel to implement file systems, network protocols, file access control, and other features that are implemented by the Unix kernel or similar kernels (such as Linux).

A bit late, but there you have it. Does anyone here actually use Hurd?

Love to test it under a VM. By the way, any news from SkyOS? It's dead I think.

SkyOS is rather dead, yes. There was a news item about it a few weeks ago, http://www.osnews.com/story/27260/Last_SkyOS_5_0_beta_released_for_...

As dead as it has been for the last couple of years, apart from the free download which overloaded their server.
