    Phoronix: Debian GNU/Hurd 2013 Release Brings New Packages

    While it wasn't part of the Debian 7.0 Wheezy release earlier this month, the GNU non-Linux folks have now put out Debian GNU/Hurd 2013. This operating system pairs the Debian user-land with the GNU Hurd kernel...

    "Benchmarks of Debian GNU/Hurd against GNU/Linux and GNU/kFreeBSD are forthcoming on Phoronix."

    Sweet!
    I am really looking forward to it!

    "but still the project is working out to a surprising level"

    It has only taken nearly a quarter of a century.

    Shouldn't it just be Debian GNU? Seems redundant to call it gnu/hurd when hurd is the gnu kernel.

    Sadly, "focus" and "linux" do not really rhyme.

    I think you're the definition of why "Don't feed the trolls" is a valid statement.

    Linux is a great Kernel, but Hurd has some very interesting and useful features (foremost the translators) which make handling things hard to do with Linux _very_ easy.
    It has taken so long to get a working system, because the Hurd-developers are focusing on constructing a well-designed system, and not focusing on rapid development. Even though the Linux kernel may work good, it is in many ways a fragmented system mainly due to the fact it has undergone heavy development in the last 20 years, which is not easy to keep together well.
