I haven't heard about people having their hardware ruined by GNU/Hurd
(Mach), so it's pretty safe to try out, if you ask me. Whether it works
for you is a different matter, hardware-support is not so great and
remember that we still have a partition limit of around 1.5 GB.

We cannot guarentee the 'safeness' of GNUMach and the GNU Hurd on any
legal layer, but it's pretty safe to run it/try it out, yes.

Just read the documentation first to find out about any caveats.
