I didn't "object" to paying for a CD.
I simply pointed out that the long article on Hurd did not mention -
what I would have thought would be the first thing to mention -
namely, where one could download this OS.
It only listed places where one can buy a CD.
Surely 99% of the people who might try Hurd would have broadband access?
