That's quite true... 

Maybe we should do another round sometime - or just add any idea to it which 
comes up here during the next weeks/months/years, so we have a repository of 
ideas people might be able to realize with the Hurd. 

Currently I'm doing that in my niches "weblog" post.

I think to make it *the* GNU system we'd need it in a state where I can just 
start any desktop on it and work with it just like in a GNU/Linux, because 
else people would just shrug and say "This is GNU then, I think I'll stick 
with GNU/Linux". 

It doesn't necessarily need to offer the same speed, but it needs to be at 
least feature-equal.
