From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Debian GNU/Hurd is the Debian project's distribution of the GNU operating system (with the GNU Hurd as its kernel).

Debian GNU/Hurd has been in development since 1998[1], but still has not been officially released. Over 60%[2] of the software packaged for Debian GNU/Linux has been ported to the GNU Hurd. However, the Hurd itself remains under development, and as such is not ready for use in production systems. The overwhelming majority of Debian users run Debian GNU/Linux, rather than Debian GNU/Hurd.

The current version of Debian GNU/Hurd is L1. The CD is IA-32, which works on IA-32 and x86-64 PCs.

Debian GNU/Hurd can be tried using a live CD.
