Experience Plan 9 on Linux!

01 Jun 2007

Plan9 is an operating system that is designed to make up for all the mistakes that UNIX made. And it’s quite different from any of the current UNIX clones, be it any of the BSDs or Linux. To ease the migration, there’s a project called Plan9Port; which is essentially a port of several Plan9 utilities to the POSIX platform.

I recently made an ebuild for  Plan9Port, also called Plan from User Space. Just ‘emerge plan9port’ and spread the Plan9 love!

Speaking of which, my Summer of Code project for Plan9 is progressing well. More details on my SoC blog, or the aggregator at KiX.
