   The current Hurd/Mach does not give users much over Linux, since
   the goal to have user-space file systems is now also fulfilled in
   Linux with FUSE, which is probably less buggy, and has more
   interested developers.

The Hurd on Mach gives far more than Linux, FUSE only implements
file-systems (and in a bad way!) in user-space.  If you do something
wrong with FUSE you crash the whole system at that, fun.

   I do not know how much work each of these would take. Mach is very
   buggy, it requires a lot of work already because of that, Hurd/L4
   is nowhere near finished (especially the device driver framework),
   and as for an effort of user-space devices for Linux (other than
   USB drivers), I don't know.

The claims that Mach is `very buggy' are all false, the only reason
why it requires `alot of work' is simply because of hard to find bugs,
but that isn't specfic to Mach.
