As far as I know rms I believe that he's referring to the long time he
had to wait for the Mach micro kernel to appear.  In the meantime Linux
has gone much farer and even the Debian project was started.  Waiting
for the kernel to appear did hurt the Hurd project because people want
to do anything, they want to use anything.
