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 <1GB Linux ["partition"], and follow the instructions.

You can follow also the instructions about Hurd on ["qemu"] : http://hurd.gnufans.org/bin/view/Distrib/HurdOnQEMU

or use the Hurd [http://www.superunprivileged.org/hurd/live-cd/ LiveCD].

?MarcusBrinkmann is the lead Debian GNUHurd developer.

What the name "Hurd" means

According to Thomas Bushnell, BSG, the primary architect of the 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." (from the ["GNU"] HURD webpage)
