    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...

    "Benchmarks of Debian GNU/Hurd against GNU/Linux and GNU/kFreeBSD are forthcoming on Phoronix."

    Sweet!
    I am really looking forward to it!

    "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.

    Lightbulb 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?

    Apple/Darwin
    Windows/NT

    Oh I'm lovin' this.
    Stallman is also a supporter of necrophilia, pedophilia, etc, apparently.

    Some rules might be called for when these acts directly affect other people's interests. For incest, contraception could be mandatory to avoid risk of inbreeding. For prostitution, a license should be required to ensure prostitutes get regular medical check-ups, and they should have training and support in insisting on use of condoms. This will be an advance in public health, compared with the situation today.
    For necrophilia, it might be necessary to ask the next of kin for permission if the decedent's will did not authorize it. Necrophilia would be my second choice for what should be done with my corpse, the first being scientific or medical use. Once my dead body is no longer of any use to me, it may as well be of some use to someone. Besides, I often enjoy rhinophytonecrophilia (nasal sex with dead plants).





    Quote Originally Posted by Richard Stallman

    I am skeptical of the claim that voluntarily pedophilia harms children. The arguments that it causes harm seem to be based on cases which aren't voluntary, which are then stretched by parents who are horrified by the idea that their little baby is maturing.





    Quote Originally Posted by Richard Stallman

    There is little evidence to justify the widespread assumption that willing participation in pedophilia hurts children.
    Granted, children may not dare say no to an older relative, or may not realize they could say no; in that case, even if they do not overtly object, the relationship may still feel imposed to them. That's not willing participation, it's imposed participation, a different issue.

    What do you guys think of this? Do you agree with him or not? I'm a big fan of Linux and his work (GNU), but I have a hard time understanding what he meant here.

    I know some people are offended by these comments, but I don't know.

    What are your thoughts?
    I agree with Stallman

    Laws against paedophiles and child porno are just stupid and unfair. I mean if it's rape then it should be illegal.

    But if the minor consents, I don't see a problem with that. But dumb idiotic cultural norms dictates the law.

    Stallman's view is that the law should not be dictated in that way. If people can understand that reasoning (and it's a very rational reasoning), they'll realise how stupid the laws against paedophiles and child porno are and also how discriminatory it is.

    As I said before, what gives you the right to tell others what to do with their free time?
