[ASK] me about OS/2 Warp


In development since 1993[27], GNU/Hurd still exists only as a proof of concept operating system. To date, the only applications the base operating system ships with are a man page for age-of-consent laws in all 50 states and 132 nations[28], and a browser locked to only access content on the Tor network[29].

hurd is a testament to what can be achieved when a handful of libertarians really put their minds together for 30 years

Well, actually...

this guy sucks rear end

quote:

In December 1991 the primary architect of the Hurd described the name as a mutually recursive acronym:[7]

It's time [to] explain the meaning of "Hurd". "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.

on the other hand stallman apparently doesn't like him, so mr bushnell is clearly not all bad
