I must admit that I *do* have trouble following you at times :-)

If I get it right, the short version is that you offer various kinds of
solutions and services based mostly on GNU/Linux (and other free
software), but also try to push Hurd where possible?

This certainly sounds interesting -- would be nice if it works out :-)

Especially the part about education makes sense to me. I like your point
that using a more obscure system is actually more interesting for
educational purposes :-)

That is interesting: I am myself interested in the Hurd mostly because I
believe that with the extensible architecture, it is a better platform
for implementing new approaches -- but so far I haven't met many who
share this opinion :-)
