GNU is Not Unix

Submission + - GNU Hurd To Develop SATA, USB, Audio Support (

An anonymous reader writes: Hurd, the GNU micro-kernel project that was founded by Richard Stallman in 1983, may finally be catching up with Linux on the desktop... Plans were shared by its developers to finally bring in some modern functionality by working on support for Serial ATA drives, USB support, and sound cards. There's also ambitions to provide x86_64 CPU architecture support. GNU Hurd developers will be doing an unofficial Debian GNU/Hurd "Wheezy" release this year but they hope for the Debian "Jessie" release their micro-kernel in Debian will make it as part of some official CDs.
