So did I, so did we all.
But that was a long time ago.
Surely now everyone is on broadband
with Terabyte disks that can hold 20 different OS's?

Just to repeat my original comment.
How can anyone write a 20-page document on Hurd
without ever saying, "Download a working version from here"?

Does anyone actually compile anything today?
Apart from developers, of course.

I know FreeBSD-ers specialize in compiling everything every day,
but they are strange people.
