Re: Debian GNU or Debian GNU/Hurd? (or Debian GNU/Hurd/Mach?)


If we have to specify the whole thing by
consistency with other names, we'd call
it like this:

Debian GNU/Hurd/Mach

by consistency with Debian GNU/Hurd/Linux
because there are plans to port the Hurd to
Linux (ie. to make Linux work as a microkernel
instead of Mach)

Every part of work deserves consideration but 
including it in the name of the whole system is
exagerated. I don't think it makes much sense
