If we believe slashdot, Linux will soon replace windows as the prefered
desktop OS. I don't what to run the same OS as everyone else I want to be
elite, I want to run Hurd and FreeBSD :-)

On another thought, I read somewhere FreeBSD is still a.out based, is this
true? No ELF. Was there a plan to get all i386 unices running the same
binaries. This would make the FreeBSD and Hurd ports a lot easier.
GNU does not eliminate all the world's problems, only some of them.
