Debian GNU/Hurd

I was just curious:
will any of you Debian GNU/Linux users try Debian GNU/Hurd when it becomes more stable, portable, and advanced?

and if so, what are your reasons that you would move away from Linux and to Hurd?

there is no knowledge that is not power

Linux was very sucessful because it filled a hole at the right time, there was no decent free/GPL UNIX kernal when it was being written so people jumped to help the project because linux was needed by the hacker community. So now there is no hole for a free UNIX monolithic kernal so when hurd is finished and released it wont be as popular.

The next big thing in kernals (which hopefully linux will be a part of) is micro-kernals, when monolithic kernals are to unwieldy in the future because they have to contain so many features, there will be a hole for a free UNIX micro-kernal.
