I ask, because I read on the net, that KDE and similar won't run, because 
pthreads aren't fully implemented. That is: Weren't fully implemented in 2000 
or so. 

And with my searches on the web I didn't find information if that had changed 
(means: if I could run KDE now :) ). 

-> I ask, because the debian guide says, it won't work, but its way to start 
xorg doesn't work, so I'm not sure how current it is.

How up to date is the Hurd user guide? 
- http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/users-guide/using_gnuhurd.html

Besides: The error I get when I try to start X.org is
"Cannot open keyboard (not a directory)"
