This is not the real problem!

If Hurd really is technically better, then you will find developers
if the way development is done is free enough. You will less people than
you would find for Lnux but the people you will find would be better.

Once Hurd has become usable it will become noticed by more....

The real problem of Hurd is that there is no real development.
