over ten years ago, when linus started working on linux,they were thinking that the hurd kernal was due out at anytime. now 10 + years later, with linux stable, why bother with hurd. at this point it's just an ego stroke for RMS.
`Hurd' stands for `Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons'. And, then, `Hird' stands for `Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth'. We have here, to my knowledge, the first software to be named by a pair of mutually recursive acronyms (link here).
So long as they're putting that much thought into names, I don't think they'll have the resources to surpass Linux.
