To compile the Hurd, you need a toolchain configured to target i?86-gnu;
you cannot use a toolchain targeting GNU/Linux. Also note that you
cannot run the Hurd "in isolation": you'll need to add further components
such as the GNU Mach microkernel and the GNU C Library (glibc), to turn
it into a runnable system.

Bringing technology to the developing world seems to be becoming a trend lately, whether it’s the Outernet project or Google’s Loon project. A new Kickstarter campaign, Endless Computers, is now bringing an affordable machine to developing markets and doesn’t rely on the user having an internet connection or a monitor.
Senior developer Neil McGovern has been elected as the leader of the Debian GNU/Linux project for 2015-16 and will take over from Lucas Nussbaum who has just completed a two-year term in the post.
The other two candidates in the race were Gergely Nagy and Mehdi Dogguy.
McGovern has been with the Debian project for the last 12 years and was the release manager for the last three versions – Lenny, Squeeze and Wheezy. (Debian releases are named after characters from the film Toy Story.)

GNU Linux-libre is a project to maintain and publish 100% Free distributions of Linux, suitable for use in Free System Distributions, removing software that is included without source code, with obfuscated or obscured source code, under non-Free Software licenses, that do not permit you to change the software so that it does what you wish, and that induces or requires you to install additional pieces of non-Free Software.
Our releases can be easily adopted by 100% Free GNU/Linux distros, as well as by their users, by distros that want to enable their users to choose freedom, and by users of those that don't.
When I started Free Software Magazine, over 10 years ago, it was a very different world. Magazines still mattered, Facebook was a primitive site for university students, Digg was about to become a huge new site (before disappearing a few years later), and... did I mention that Magazines still mattered?
Fast-forward to 2015: it has been 11 years. While I can say that for the first time I have contributed to an exciting free software project with a few thousands lines of code, Hotplate -- and believe me, I've been keeping busy -- I was forced to put Free Software Magazine in hiatus in order to complete Hotplate.
Parsix GNU/Linux is a live and installation DVD based on Debian. Our goal is to provide a ready to use and easy to install desktop and laptop optimized operating system based on Debian's testing branch and the latest stable release of GNOME desktop environment. Users can easily install extra software packages from Parsix APT repositories. Our annual release cycle consists of two major and four minor versions. We have our own software repositories and build servers to build and provide all the necessary updates and missing features in Debian stable branch.
