    Phoronix: GNU Hurd Gets Better Rump PCI Driver Support, Now Runs VirtIO Driver

    There's some improvements to talk about in GNU Hurd land...

    Maybe if Hurd gets good enough GNU can take their userland with them to GNU/Hurd and we can just use BusyBox/Linux - except instead of calling it BusyBox/Linux we'll just call it Linux.

      FYI: it's not GNU that goes to the distro makers and threatens kittens of death in front of them that causes widespread adoption of GNU userland.

      Some distros like say Debian or Gentoo (probably also Arch) allow you to run the show on busybox.

      Also, Hurd is less likely to become something useful before ReactOS does.

        Well GNU does have a working kernel and it's called Linux Libre. And I don't think anybody prevents you from using BusyBox/Linux and call it Linux. You have the freedom of choice :-)

          I look forward to when this is on par with the Linux Kernel.
          Some serious competition would do the open source world great good.

            The only way Hurd could get anywhere near feature parity with Linux would be if Linux gets abandoned. Seriously, Hurd isn't even 64bit.

              Sadly, you're probably right...
