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.

?MarcusBrinkmann is the lead ["DebianGNUHurd"] 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)'''
