    Phoronix: Debian GNU/Hurd 2013 Release Brings New Packages

    While it wasn't part of the Debian 7.0 Wheezy release earlier this month, the GNU non-Linux folks have now put out Debian GNU/Hurd 2013. This operating system pairs the Debian user-land with the GNU Hurd kernel...

      "but still the project is working out to a surprising level"

      It has only taken nearly a quarter of a century.

        Shouldn't it just be Debian GNU? Seems redundant to call it gnu/hurd when hurd is the gnu kernel.

            Sadly, "focus" and "linux" do not really rhyme.

              Hurd is _not_ turd, you turd

              I think you're the definition of why "Don't feed the trolls" is a valid statement.

              Linux is a great Kernel, but Hurd has some very interesting and useful features (foremost the translators) which make handling things hard to do with Linux _very_ easy.
              It has taken so long to get a working system, because the Hurd-developers are focusing on constructing a well-designed system, and not focusing on rapid development. Even though the Linux kernel may work good, it is in many ways a fragmented system mainly due to the fact it has undergone heavy development in the last 20 years, which is not easy to keep together well.

                Oh dear, has Shuttleworth written a blog post about Hurd now?

                    lol the same guy who criticized the mir in all forums about linux in the world lol

                    hurd lost her chance 20 years ago to linux.
