Hmmm. The formative stages. HURD began _before_ Linux. Still seems to be
vaporware. Could be due to it's inferiority. Back when Linus first
announced his "little project", he got flamed by many who were talking
about the superiority of HURD and GNU in general. Of course, he was also
flamed for using a 386 for the platform. This was '91 IRC. Maybe it will
be viable some day, but I'm skeptical.


Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has
never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are
arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.
