Has anyone played with Hurd lately?
I recently installed Hurd on a spare partition on one of my systems and it seemed to go reasonably smoothly. I was just curious if anyone had played around with it recently or was actually using it to do anything useful. I read quite a lot about Mach's design in Uresh Vahalia's book Unix Internals and it seems like an interesting system to play around with.
One thing I have noticed is that the network seems quite slow (perhaps as a result of the m,icrokernel in general being slow) and I was wondering if anyone else noticed the same.
