GNU Hurd on the other hand is an alternative kernel that the GNU software was originally written for.
In the previous Debian 6 release, the distribution added the option of using a FreeBSD kernel (i386 or amd64) with the Debain software collection, and in the next version they intend to provide similar support for the GNU Hurd kernel.
