For me the Hurd is the operating system where anybody can set up his
own rules. The possibility to customize things that lie at deepest
levels in other operating systems makes the Hurd a kind of a
playground for me. Under the Hurd one can find out quite easily what
are the building blocks out of which one's operating system is
constructed and change some of these blocks to see what will happen ;-)

Also, I consider that the Hurd is a very good learning ground for me:
during GSoC a learnt a lot of new things, many of which I hadn't even
heard of before. And such things are still falling on me out of the
blue sky giving me further enthusiasm :-)
