One of my aims in starting Arch Hurd was to end up with a system which
could run on my server, maybe also my netbook. There are only a few
things (alas, big things) before I can do that. In order of importance:

  * USB
  * Sound
  * SATA

  * SATA
  * USB
  * Sound
  * Wireless

One of the major functions of my server is sharing USB HDDs across the
network, and another is playing music. So whilst Hurd can do more or
less everything else, it can't yet fulfil two of my main motivations
for building a server in the first place.

Neither my netbook nor server can put SATA drives in PATA legacy mode,
though my server does have an IDE connector on the motherboard.
