Sooo... what's the plan?  Stay with Mach and feed that old stuff?

I suppose that depends on who you ask. Some of the bigwigs are looking at a totally new system based on Coyotos. Some of us are trying to do what we can with Mach, while Richard is writing a "mach-compatible" replacement that I don't believe he intends to actually utilize for Hurd but I may be wrong there. I personally liked the idea of L4 but apparently there were technical concerns that were way over my head. (Though from what I understand, some of the new derivatives of L4 might be more compatible).

Welcome to Free Software. You are welcome to do whatever you wish, which means everyone does what they want and no one steers the ship! :-)
