GNU hurd "Вы помните времена когда мужчины были мужчинами и сами писали драйвера к своим устройствам?"

Tired of mainstream free software distros and operating systems? Then this is for you:
It's a fresh QEMU image of GNU (aka. GNU/Hurd), the extensible operating system designed to liberate users from the tyranny of sysadmins, professional kernel hackers, and other restrictions to Freedom #1.
The image is continuously cross-built from GNU/Linux, using the Nix package manager, off the VCS of GNU Mach, the Hurd, Coreutils, grep, and Guile 2.0.x. It also contains snapshots of other programs, such as Zile, GCC, and GNU Make.
The intent is (1) to allow integration testing of Mach, the Hurd, and the C library, and (2) to allow other GNU packages to be tested on GNU/Hurd in a virtual machine.

hurd Hello,

There are rumors that Duke Nukem Forever will actually be released in
Apr^WMa^WJune 2011, so there's no escape for the Hurd any more, we had
to finish and release. There has been considerable progress lately,
so it is with great pleasure that the Hurd maintainers team decided
to release version 0.401 of the GNU/Hurd Operating System. As the
version number and image size suggest, this is only a small preview
of course, but we expect GNU/Hurd to be of production-quality within
the third millenium, to be sure.

A LiveCD demo is available on
and can be trivially tried using
qemu -cdrom hurd-0.401.iso

We hope that you will appreciate its features and speed.
