    Is there any one using this OS?

      As a daily driver - probably nobody. But it’s an interesting project, and if you are a GPL purist this might be very interesting in the long run.

      Also, rump(a) means butt in Swedish which makes this (and other rump kernels) interesting due to reasons. ^_^

        Also, rump(a) means butt in Swedish

        It is also the primary meaning of the word in English

          TIL, thanks! :D

        Not directly but it’s like the Haskell of operating systems. Or maybe Self would make a better analogy. Without Hurd and other microkernel petri dish projects we likely wouldn’t have FUSE or pulseaudio on Linux.

          Ahh, nice to know the FUSE is related to Hurd. Does FUSE exist on Hurd as well? How’s the performance?

            Rather, all Hurd filesystems are in userspace, and they are called translators. Have a look at Small Examples on Using Translators.
