According to Arch Hurd packages page the latest package update was back in March 7, 2013. If I am correct, this would mean that their OpenSSL package is vulnerable to Heartbleed. HelloMiles (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 13:38, 30 April 2017 (UTC)


The website of Arch Hurd seems down as of February 16, 2014. Smile4ever (talk) 09:46, 16 February 2014 (UTC)

"Nearly usable"[edit]

I'm not quite sure how to interpret this... Arzg (talk) 18:42, 17 June 2017 (UTC)

That means, it does not work, and it never worked, but they are hopeful to fix that minor problem in just a few lifetimes. --Ghettobuoy (talk) 03:58, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

No longer alive[edit]

Last post on Facebook 2011-08-17, last entry on a web page 2011-08-17, website no longer accessible. This is a distribution with a rolling release scheme, so if there is no trace of current changes (not even a recent kernel), the project can be pronounced dead. --Ghettobuoy (talk) 03:56, 2 January 2018 (UTC)
