GNU/Hurd has nothing to do with "communists". Please desist from spreading misinformation.

I wouldn't also say it was a communist ideal, but yea - I wouldn't hold your breath with HURD -- maybe in another few decades, when everybody is geriatric, (for those who are already geriatric and already shed their mortal shell...) , it might be ........somewhat usable.... lol

How is it that the folks who managed to give us a splendid Unix OS require more than 20 years to write a kernel?

Isn't that exactly because of the HURD? Being a parallel on-demand kernel it is extremely hard to debug especially in initial development. Everything is so interdependent you fix one thing and five others break because of the "fix". The "one-step-at-a-time approach is far simpler.

I don't know, this seems legit.
