    Phoronix: Debian GNU/Hurd 2015 Released

    With this weekend's release of Deboan 8.0 Jessie there wasn't an adjoining Debian GNU/Hurd release, but today that release has come out...

    Nice. I don't use GNU/Hurd for day-to-day stuff, but I'm glad the project exists - if only to ensure it necessary to maintain some level of sysvinit support in Debian, and to see another GPL kernel in development.

    I'm actually looking forward to Guix getting some GNU/Hurd love. Guix has a steep learning curve (it feels very unfamiliar territory coming from Debian - I still haven't figured out how to configure X.org to work with my touchpad correctly through the Scheme system config), but it's got some killer features. Development appears to be here: https://github.com/Phant0mas/Guix-on-Hurd

        Who gives a rusty effyouseekay?

        Coordinate with MIT, Cal-Tech, Berkley, etc.

        Get GNOME 3.14.4 for Sid and 3.16.1 for Experimental/Sid. The crap this project continues to waste time on is astounding.

          Why care about sysv instead of say OpenRC?

            Or GNU dmd for that matter (which is what Guix uses).

            But sysvinit is the most widely known, and it's super-reliable.

              It is their time, not yours. Why do you think you are entitled to tell them to only work on projects you like? Why don't you go ahead and help bringing a newer Gnome to Debian if you want it so badly?

                OpenRC is also available on GNU/Hurd. You choose which init to use, right now sysv is the default. Of course you cannot run systemd, who would ever want to do that?

                  FYI: GNU dmd and Guix for Hurd is in the works too.

                    Thanks. Yep, I know it's in the works and am looking forward to it, although I have no idea how long we can expect to realistically wait for it to catch up to Debian GNU/Hurd standards. I'm aware they assigned someone from Google SoC to work on it.
