There is a major difference between the GNU/Hurd and all the Linux and
BSD ports.  We are creating a new os.

This means that we have a different agenda when compared with the other
ports.  The example I know best in the installation CDs;  these are a
temporary hack to enable people to get a system running and hopefully get
on with some real development.  A proper installer can come later when the
infrastructure has been developed.

I have a GNU/Hurd system on a HDD which I can plug in when needed.
