are you sure about that?

I think that it's a stupid flame...Why there are problems to enhace GNU/Hurd?

Sooner or later hurd/random(?) server will be added to the base system...why not now? I think that random64 is allways better than a /bin/bash <-- that allways is the same key -_-UU but if you think that a shit of security is better than a bad security...

Please, don't enlarge this flame. Just think about enhace GNU/Hurd..I think that this project will never advance if we allways say: "Actually there's more important things to do", I think that there is enought people working on GNU/Hurd to make an stable system. But I feel important to work on a lot of front lines will be better.

Sorry if I seems aggresive. I only express my opinion.
