    Not only is Debian 9.0 released as the main GNU/Linux OS, but also Debian GNU/Hurd is now out with a major release as their pairing of the GNU user-land with Hurd in place of the Linux kernel...

    I know they love the GPL, but Darwin and NextBSD already exist.

      You mean that Minix already exist, because neither of those are microkernels like hurd. Maybe you can count Haiku if you count hybrid kernels

        NextBSD is freebsd with modern unix ipc and init. Darwin is hybrid with Mach low level syscalls and memory management. Minix is great, try it.

        haiku really isn't that interesting from a kernel point of view.

          NextBSD does not exist. Hubbard have trolled all of us and then abandoned.

            Could you specify what's so great about it? I'd love to see where it's being used.

              Infamous intel management engine is based on it apparently.

                I dunno where it is being used other than for hobby/research, however they take great pains to make the operating system self healing. It will recover from a number of critical faults due to the microkernel design. It's also fairly usable already unlike some systems.

                  More than 3GB RAM? Very impressive.

                    it's a full-blown microkernel, Actually it's interesting project.

                    Dial down on automatic sarcasm and investigate the thing perhaps..?
