Please stop all this mail about the techincal merits of Linux, Hurd or
any other kernel or OS, they are totally off-topic.

The discussion about Linux and BitKeeper, has been fully exploited now

I think nobody that cares about the freedom of software (and it's
developers) likes Linus' decision, but he decided so, and screaming will
not make him change that decision.

When Stallman and others understanded that Free Software was the way to
go, they do not screamed at other users, instead they started a project
to produce free software and it was the right move, now we can enjoy the
fruits of that hard work and run on a free OS!

So, now, if any really care about pushing Free Software, let start
analysing what alternatives there are to BitKeeper seriously, what needs
Linus and other that adopted BitKeeper have, and put forces on improving
an existing tool or plan a project to build up a new one.

That's the way to go!
That will benefit not only Linux hackers but probably also other
