The Hurd is a ?MultiServer ?MicroKernel ["POSIX"]-emulating operating system kernel, based on the ["Mach"] microkernel, although there has been talk about porting it to the ["L4"] microkernel too.

Currently, TheHurd is not in a usable state yet, but you can still install it, if you just work a bit and already got linux working. You have to use ["GRUB"] to boot (["LILO"] doesn't support ["Mach"]), which is a good thing anyway. Prepare a <1Gib Linux partition, and follow the instructions.

?MarcusBrinkmann is the lead ["DebianGNUHurd"] developer.
