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.

 Thomas (then Michael) Bushnell

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