A Unix-like operating system based on the GNU Mach microkernel from Carnegie Mellon (Hurd and Mach make up the GNU Hurd operating system from the GNU Project). Hurd is known as a "multiserver" operating system, which enables system components such as file systems to be added by the user that otherwise would have to be incorporated by the operating system developer.
