That's no discussion, but a simple PR thing: "Show your features". If the Hurd 
can run a graphical desktop, there should be a screenshot of that. 

It doesn't matter which desktop, but only the general capability: We can use a 
(more or less) rich desktop with the Hurd.

Even if most potential Hurd developers mostly use the shell and know not to 
measure a kernel by the desktop, these can be put off by a vocal "it can't even 
do X" crowd. 

Best wishes,
