I already said it more or less, but maybe it helps if I restate it more

The main reason I'm interested in the Hurd, is that I believe it to be a
better platform for implementing my ideas regarding more efficient and
powerful desktop environments. (While at the same time -- unlike Plan9
for example -- keeping UNIX (GNU) compatibility.)

Having an official GNU kernel is also somewhat of a motivation for me.
