I am *not* very confused, as I run a HURD computer, specifically Arch
HURD.  HURD is far outdated compared to standards, whether you like to
admit it or not, just because it's a *research* OS does not make it
*not* outdated and if you think that just because there are commits that
it's not outdated, let me introduce you to the /real/ world.

And /they/ have said before that it will probably never be ready for use
because it's constantly in development.  Even if Arch says that you can
possibly, just quite possibly run it as a production system.  And you're
right, it doesn't matter, because the goal is to teach mostly but they
*obviously* want to get somewhere.
