Supporting a GNU Hurd port?

I'd just like to add probably-not-even-two-cents-worth:

Whilst I personally can't see any immediately viable (read: in the next 10
years, if ever) work to use HURD (*shudder*) or MINIX, the OP might get some
satisfaction from Nexenta ( From what I've read
(project maintainers and users), it's in a really good shape. If it's so
important to the OP to use something other than Linux (personally, I don't
really see the point, but that's my overly-biased opinion), then get
something with a kernel which has actually been shown to work on a fairly
wide array of devices and which has constant, active development. Oh yeah,
and get ZFS... Man, I wish the whole licensing debacle for ZFS was over and
I could mkfs.zfs... But I digress.


There is no shame in not knowing; the shame is in not finding out.
