The Hurd ?

I found some information that seems to say that it's under much more 
active development than that.
http://www.copyleft.co.nz/hurd.html  is a recent page that has pointers 
to recent development ISO images of 'the Hurd'  Jan 2002 even  :)  and 
this page http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/  was updated this month.
I really only started looking into it seriously after reading an article 
in LWN http://lwn.net/2002/0314/  that talks about
"

*The GNU HURD will be ready by the end of the year*, or so says Richard 
Stallman in this PC World article 
<http://www.idg.net/ic_829012_4394_1-3921.html>. Says Richard:

    We actually have the GNU kernel working, and we can now produce the
    GNU system, as opposed to the GNU/Linux system that people have been
    using so far. 

so maybe there is some more significant progress happening, I'll be 
keeping my ears open anyway.

Cheers,
David Creed
