The fact we aren't using Hurd has *nothing* to do with
the fact it is a micro kernel, and you know it.

If Hurd has the same level of hardware support as
Linux, as many contributors, and as many features,
then probably, it would also have as many users.

Mixing the discussion around feature and engineer
design does *not* work, even in the case of kernels.
