I have just read about the release of a truely GNU microkernel which RMS (Stallman) has released. Called Hurd (get the title now?
Apparently this fulfils RMS's dream of a truely GNU system as opposed to a GNU/Linux system (which is what we really
should be saying).
Tell me if I'm wrong here, but isn't this just more diversity which we don't really need. We have seen the trouble of specific distro kernels being produced, and some of the enhancements they have made not being put back into the orginal kernel.
Will anybody care about this new microkernel? Will it create more confusion? Will it be actually used?
Just how far do you take your beliefs and put them into practice?
