Yeah, it seems to always end up this way, hurd architects think that
one important
feature is missing or is done wrong, and then wait for another set of years.

I'd like to see a GNU kernel with userspace drivers and maybe one or
two more features,
but I don't think it will come someday. Minix3 seems better for this
task because it has
one advantage: it works right now.

I know, this is just a rant, but I just wanted to share what I'm
thinking from my
external point of view.
