I don't think we really can, for various reasons I don't really have
time to explain in details, but basically we can't claim the GNU/Hurd is
actually secure (even if the principles are really good for security,
AFAIK nobody has made an actual security review over the code), it is
slower than Linux, it doesn't support SMP yet, etc. I don't see how
we could be competitive with anything that is currently on the market

I'm not, actually.
(I'm not even a Hurd maintainer officially)

Note that I'm really talking about the *lead* part, not the maintenance
