As a time-time tester of GNUHurd, i'm curious about the objectives of
Hurd. I know it's said to be a replacement for Unix/Linux/BSD but I
think pitching Hurd against these three will not work out IMHO.
Hurd to me feels like a great system for desktop use. I'm suggesting
that Hurd is pitched as "The Greatest Unix-like desktop" coz i believe
it has even greater pottential than OSX. This way, Hurd doesn't
threaten Unix/Linux/BSD and will attract more users/Dev's. Say, if you
want a server go for Linux/BSD; If you want a desktop go for Hurd.
