Has anyone here tried hurd yet?  Does it actually /do/ anything yet?
Reading the install guide it can run X at least so maybe it can.

Things like:
	Sit back and watch the messages. This is actually more important
	than most people believe: there is a bug in GNU Mach whereby
	hitting a key during the boot process causes the kernel to
	panic. 

Don't really inspire confidence.
