    Thought I would show my NEXT desktop. However this is not GNU/Linux. This is GNU/MACH (Debian HURD).

    Nice desktop, but would Debian Hurd be GNU/Hurd rather than GNU/Mach?

    Nice Mate-desktop @atanere !

    The OS currently in development is called Debian GNU/Hurd. GNU-Mach is something called a micro-kernel, whatever that is. Without doing any research, my guess is GNU-Mach is the kernel used by the Debian GNU/Hurd OS.

    Hurd is a kernel as well as Mach and Linux.

    The difference between HURD and MACH is really weird...
    http://www.gnu.org/software/hurd/hurd/what_is_the_gnu_hurd.html

    EDIT Yes it should be GNU/HURD not GNU/MACH

    I love the GNU explanations:
    Hurd stands for Hird of Unix-Replacing Daemons. And, then, Hird stands for Hurd of Interfaces Representing Depth.

    Nice explanation @ryanvade I've heard of Hurd and thats about where my knowledge of that kernel/system ends. Let us know how you like it, i'd be interested to try it out some day when I have more time.

    Also glad GNU is keeping with its excellent naming policy :D

    An experiment with a dark theme. I added the Debian name to a backdrop that matches the dark theme to pay homage to Debian. I decided to post the images, since these dark experiments are short-lived. (They drive me crazy quickly.)

    Oddly I can't see @Cyber-Berserker pictures either, but I can save them to disk and view them on my PC o_O I can follow the URL and view them too...

    Maybe an issue with the forums?

    The GNU Mach microkernel is part of GNU Hurd. Hurd is not exactly a kernel but a set of daemons running on top of GNU Mach.

    Odd indeed. I can see them in the post and get full size by clicking on them. I agree with MickeyD, that it may be a problem with the board.

    FYI I checked this earlier today on three systems and on one system I only saw the image files, no pictures. I right clicked and reloaded page 3 and the images appeared as normal. --Strange

    PS I was suprised to see the Debian logo verses a fine pair of boots...

    Now I can not see see the images in the post, but when I right click them, I do see them full screen. Nice desk top, Cyber-Berserker. Guess I had best get moving in that department, I still have a "stock" desktop but then again, it does help announce that it ain't Windows. ( I mean, really, how can one miss the Mint 16 logo?)
