An Introduction to GNU Hurd.

Held in Comfy Lounge MC3001, on 2002-01-26, at 2:00 PM.


GNU Hurd is an operating system kernel based on the microkernel architecture design. It was the original GNU kernel, predating Linux, and is still being actively developed by many volunteers.

The Toronto-area Hurd Users Group, in co-operation with the Computer Science Club, is hosting an afternoon to show the Hurd to anyone interested. Jeff Bailey, a Hurd developer, will give a presentation on the Hurd, followed by a GnuPG/PGP keysigning party. To finish it off, James Morrison, also a Hurd developer, will be hosting a Debian GNU/Hurd installation session.

All interested are invited to attend. Bring your GnuPG/PGP fingerprint and mail your key to with the subject ``keysigning'' (see separate announcement).

Questions? Suggestions? Contact James Morrison.
